Ping Issues across WAN link : help needed

Hello I am trying to ping across a WAN circuit and see the following issues:

The interface configuration is as follows:

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.100
 encapsulation dot1Q 100
 ip address 172.28.88.254 255.255.255.254
end

The issues seems to be related to the MTU size allowed on the circuit; any advise on this will be much appreciated.

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 100
Success rate is 99 percent (999/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 200
Success rate is 99 percent (996/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 500
Success rate is 99 percent (994/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 800
Success rate is 98 percent (989/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/4 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 1200
Success rate is 97 percent (978/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/16 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 1400
Success rate is 96 percent (968/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/36 ms

RTR#ping 172.28.88.255 repeat 1000 size 1450
Success rate is 92 percent (924/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/4 ms


Or there could be other issues present?

Thanks

Bigger packets are more likely to congest or have a bit error during transmission (or ping responder might be made busier), and so also more likely to be dropped.  So, it's not unreasonable that you see the drop percentage increase a bit.

However, without knowing more about your circuit or your ping responder, cannot say whether your results are "normal".  Many WAN circuits can pass your ping tests without any drops.

For example, as your interface is a Ethernet port, with a VLAN tag, are there any other subinterfaces?  Does your "WAN" have any kind of bandwidth limit less than port speed?

thanks for your reply Joseph.

thanks for your reply Joseph.

 

there are other subinterfaces as follows:

 

interface GigabitEthernet0/0.101
 description | WAN - DATA VRF
 encapsulation dot1Q 101
 ip vrf forwarding DATA1
 ip address 172.28.88.252 255.255.255.254
end

and the ping response

ping vrf DATA1 172.28.88.253 size 1450 repeat 1000
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 1000, 1450-byte ICMP Echos to 172.28.88.253, timeout is 2 seconds:

Success rate is 98 percent (987/1000), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/2/4 ms
 

The main interface is as below and there is no bandwidth limiting on the router

interface GigabitEthernet0/0
  mtu 1450
 no ip address
 duplex full
 speed 100
end

MTU 1450?

So the WAN link is 100 Mbps, p2p?  (I.e. it's not an Ethernet handoff to something that might have some CIR restriction?  Nor is it multipoint?)

The current MTU is set to

The current MTU is set to 1450. do you think this could be causing the issue?

 

The WAN link is 10Mbps P-P; the Interface on the router connects directly to the WAN link service provider. Will have to check with them

I don't know if it causing your issues, but if possible, a standard size Ethernet MTU would be better.
