Do I worry about 7ms ping request to the server

I am trying to troubleshoot some network issues in a office. I am running a ping 192.168.1.5 -t which is the server or I might try the router. Most all the connection are 1ms or = I have seen a few 1 out of 20 that will be 7ms.
Do I worry and troubleshoot connection issues or move on to other troubleshooting. I just have some users that are getting disconnected from there Outlook profile or slow access to open files in Excel.

Me personally I would move on, but keep it in the back of my head.  You may have a switch that is having issues or some random loopback issue that pops up.  but it could simply be because the servers are having an issue responding.

7ms is nothing to be concerned about, packet loss however is (enough to knock an exchange user into offline mode)

But has Hutch said, it is likely a server issue.

Hi
most pcs or aren't that brilliant at measuring ping times that precisely so a few milliseconds wouldn't concern me however if your seeing clients not accessing there outlook profile i would try pinging when the outlook issue is occurring to see if there is a complete loss at the time also check any link state lights and collision lights if your connecting to switches rather than hubs there is a wealth of network diagnostic info available. simply if it affect multiple clients at the same time its more likely to be the server and/or overuse of the network than bad networking. i would think there is a pc with a bad network card connected try and find a commonality is it when x pc is downloading from the net? is it when we all check our emails at the same time

Hope the above helps
