Approx. 11:15 PM, 50 Guests on-line, and 5-10 second delays for response from server--here's a PingPlot.  About 10 minutes later, and only 30 Guests on-line and the response time was much better!

I am certainly no networking expert, but it would seem the problem is coming from hops #4 (Comcast, 60% packet loss) and #9 (Savvis, 40% packet loss).

*Any* packet loss is bad, and a sign of a problem. But 60% is high.

Also #8 (AT&T, had one trace at 102, which is quadruple the average, tho no PL).

The last 3 hops (I believe) are WiredTree, and they look good.

Sometimes a simple refresh can find a different route, bypassing problematic hops. That's kinda how the web works.

Maybe Magoo can elaborate. That's his bailiwick.

By the way, you might be interested to know (I was) that the President of WiredTree (Zac) told me they purposefully block the names of our/their upstream nodes (notice blank dashes, instead of DNS names), cuz most people do not want others to know the identity of their providers.

Not sure if this is a security issue, or a business issue (or both).

Thanks for taking the time to run and post a tracert.

The traces to the destination look good.  Like you said, the last 3 hops look good.  Since the packet has to go through all of the routers in between to get there, all the hops along the way are probably ok.  Traceroute packets are a very low priority for a router, so busy routers sometimes drop them (creating apparent packet loss) while normal traffic gets through with no issues.  Those routers showing packet loss are probably busy, but not saturated.

I'd be interested in seeing another traceroute from a different starting point next time there are issues to compare the two graphs.  Server load graphs from the time in question would be fun to compare against too.

Everything is lightning quick now...

Music to my ears.

Regarding load stats .. that's something I can do:

Note there is a 2-hour diff between here and Chicago.

Hmm, nothing in the load graph around the time of the incident.  I'm seeing some big delays right now, but its that time of the night that the rkhunter cron job is probably running.  Network looks good; Here is a trace:

I removed the first 3 hops because they were just my internal network.

Around 7:05 am--53 Guests and 4 Users--Response to clicks asking for server response are a little sluggish--2-5 second delays--variable.

I'm doubting that the cross country signal is *slow*--just having to wait your turn for the system to respond--similar to when my system is doing some background task like a virus scan--my system puts certain keystrokes in a cue and there can be slight delays for opening another program or printing.

About 7:30 now, 73 Guests, 4 Users--no delays!!!

Delays may depend on what all those users are doing at any given moment!

There has been some high disk I/O activity on the main hardware node as a whole that most likely accounts for some of the sluggish responses that you are seeing. I think we found out the main reason why and if the trend continues action will be taken.
