Notice that anything slow isn't with the server system, it is all before the system.
From my experience, pings, tracert or any other remote query to a server will only give you bandwidth measurement as there is no way to tell how fast the server served up the pages.
In order to get server performance numbers you have to have a server compoonent running on the server and you must have access to that component.
Addendum: a ping ms result varies with your connection to the net. 56K will result in bigger ms numbers than say T1.
That said, here is a home spun page of high q resources for various server/hosting stuff. Looks like a legit page (not one of those raided odp pages we've gotten used to seeing)
