The longest link on the test path has been detected at this hop, measured from the previous node.

Recommended action

No action required.

Detailed explanation

The longest link in the path may be of interest. This message indicates that, on a sufficiently long path, a particular Layer-3 link has been identified as the greatest contributor to the overall latency of the path, contributing in excess of 30% of the total delay.

Possible secondary messages

  • "Link to previous node contributes significant percentage of total latency"
