Is re-routing around nodes on a tracert possible?
Posted on 2013-06-27
Hello! I am having a heck of a time with performance on a certain websites during evening hours. I have Verizon serviced internet and there is a bandwidth issue between them and Cogent Networks. Now when I run a tracert to a website we use for production, we pass through cogentco.com nodes to get to the site. In the evenings, our connection slows down to the site and I see timeouts on cogentco.com nodes on the traces. Now this is a larger problem apparently than just myself after googling some. I have a Verizon serviced T1 connection. Should they be able to route me around the cogent network nodes so I can get optimal performance back on this production site we use? Or is there another option I am not thinking of to avoid Cogent's nodes? I have tried alternate DNS but they all go through those nodes it seems. Please forgive me if I chose wrong topics, but I am not sure how to classify this. Thanks!
