Tincture Pinger is new. Only 2 days old. Pingers operate on a 12-day average
to come up with their Latency and Uptime numbers. So victor's numbers will
improve/change over time.

But the number to be concerned about is the Uptime. Victor needs to
eventually increase to 98-100 uptime. Otherwise Yamn software will never
choose it when it builds random chains.

It has not changed. Are you sure you stopped/started Yamn after making the

sudo systemctl stop yamn.service
sudo systemctl start yamn.service
