Yeah but they are related too (due to the speed of light if nothing else). Anyway: ping masterdistfiles.gentoo.org PING rsync.osuosl.org (64.50.233.100) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from ftp-nyc.osuosl.org (64.50.233.100): icmp_req=1 ttl=50 time=301 ms [...] --- rsync.osuosl.org ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 9066ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 286.854/292.275/301.749/5.198 ms ping masterdistfiles-us.gentoo.org PING rsync.osuosl.org (64.50.236.52) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from ftp-chi.osuosl.org (64.50.236.52): icmp_req=1 ttl=51 time=238 ms [...] --- rsync.osuosl.org ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 9009ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 232.765/233.949/238.296/2.030 ms ping masterdistfiles-eu.gentoo.org PING kea.gentoo.org (194.116.84.30) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from kea.gentoo.org (194.116.84.30): icmp_req=1 ttl=51 time=340 ms [...] --- kea.gentoo.org ping statistics --- 10 packets transmitted, 10 received, 0% packet loss, time 9152ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 340.814/341.800/347.640/2.111 ms Looks like the -us one has slightly lower latency. Don't know about bandwidth. Adrian
