Latency on Virtual Switch - Hyper-V 2008R2 - Guest VM 2008R2 - HP

Experiencing an issue with unusual ping times from within a Hyper-V VM running 2008R2.

The configuration is as follows:

HP Proliant ML350 Gen8
Windows Server 2008 R2 running Hyper-V

Windows Server 2008 R2
2 x vCPU

See attached picture for ping times for an example of the issue. I believe this is causing unexpected issues with Office applications crashing when using/opening remote files as well as unexpected issues with 3rd party apps (Tasbooks).

When running a ping -t from the host to a network device, the ping responses are always <1ms. From within the VM is where the problem occurs.

Any help appreciated.

Virtual Machine Queues has been disabled, as per other suggestions found, along with the offloading.

a ping time of less than 1ms is about the fastest you can get.

I agree, I think.

What about the attached image showing the problem?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
The image attached has only a couple higher than 1ms, and those are so minor as to be negligible.
utilizeAuthor Commented:
I wouldn't expect anything more than <1ms between virtual machine and host. Am I being unreasonable?

Often those ping response times will reach teen figures.
Cliff GaliherCommented:
Yes, that's pretty unreasonable. Small variances are to be expected even on a high speed LAN.
