Practically straight out of the box, plugged into nothing but a laptop, pinging this switch the ping times are 3ms on average instead of the expected less than 1 ms. Sometimes they are as high as 24ms. Is this normal? I have never ever seen any brand of switch do this before.
The model is H3C S5120-EI, which is an H3C brand, now owned by HP.
The only thing configured on the switch is an IP on the VLAN interface so I can ping it, a user (required when logging into console the first time), and saving the configuration.
