cmd --> ping 127.0.0.1

that should also work in oklahoma :3:

 

but a ping of real zero is technically impossible. It always takes time until a file or pack arrived. even if it gets faster and faster, a latency of 0 does not work. even a € 3,000 audio interfaces have a latency. which is only at 1.4ms but less is currently not possible. 

but you should not trust this speedtest in general. If you test on 5 different servers, you get 5 different results. If I use this speed test and use an American server, I have a better ping than if I take one from Bonn (50 minutes away from here). You can roughly measure the speed, but if you have a ping of 1, 20, or 50, you can not tell.

Personally, I prefer https://testmy.net/ because I can set parameters, have a better choice of servers, etc. etc.  Also tests Up and Down separately.  If you need to troubleshoot your Twitch live stream, you don't use Ookla Speed Test, you use testmy.net

Its possible to have latency less than 1ms. If you ping your local gateway, youll likely get less than 1ms. 

 the example with the audio interface is of course not recommended for networks and should only show that it is technically not possible to have a ping of 0 because it takes time to calculate and process. you can get latencies under 1ms in a network but not 0ms. and at audio cards you just dont get less than 1.4ms. but that will be happen in a few years...

Ping also measures round trip time (RTT), ie to the destination and back. 

Tell that to Alura :rofl:

Yea, with a ping like that, I wonder if she's some kind of emergent sentient a.i. like Binary or something... Are you, Alaura?  Are you a bot?  Is this why you asked me all those questions about my personal preferences and asked me to choose an update schedule? :tatice_03: (j/k) haha
