ms is a unit of time:


ms = milliseconds,

1 ms = 0.001 seconds = 1000th of a second.

1000 ms = 1 second


While hours, minutes and seconds usually suffice for us, electronic times go in milli [10^-3], micro [10^-6], nano [10^-9], pico [10^-12] etc. seconds.


The larger the ms you see while tracing, the more time is consumed for the packet to traverse that link.


Thanks.
