Three asterisks in traceroute results


Hello,

Traceroute to my server looks like this:

PHP Code:
<1 ms <1 ms <1 ms ...
2 39 ms 38 ms 38 ms ...
3 39 ms 38 ms 40 ms ...
4 71 ms 71 ms 72 ms ...
5 121 ms 99 ms 100 ms ...
6 96 ms 96 ms 96 ms ...
7 92 ms 96 ms 96 ms ...
8 106 ms 102 ms 106 ms ...
9 135 ms 133 ms 133 ms ...
10 134 ms 133 ms 132 ms ...
11 135 ms 140 ms 157 ms ...
12 143 ms 142 ms 138 ms ...
13 140 ms 140 ms 140 ms my.datacenter [...]
14 * * * Request timed out
15 138 ms 138 ms 138 ms my
.server [...] 
There are always 3 asterisks before my server. What does it mean? Traceroutes to other servers in the same datacenter show the same results.

They are probably filtering out ICMP.

Is it good or bad? I am just trying to find out why Apache on my server periodically is very slow.

It shouldn't make your server slow, must be something else.
