[public-dns-discuss] Re: Google DNS Possible Routing Issue? Or Load Balancer Issue?



Google Public DNS is a DNS service, not an ICMP service. So to measure the quality of service, you should be sending DNS queries, not ICMP packets.

A few ICMP drops, or particularly long response times for a ping, are normal and can be expected. If you are very concerned about reliability, you should use a dnsping tool (see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/public-dns-discuss/p1o62SJElck/w0flYsmqBQAJ).
[Note that the 100 QPS rate limit mentioned in that linked post has since been increased several times.]
