A command-prompt utility in MS-DOS and UNIX that reports the gateways, or hops, that your data travels through on the Internet to reach its destination.
A command that displays PING results for each router encountered between a source and a destination TCP/IP address. Traceroute is useful for getting some...
Program that shows the pathway packets travel to a destination host by sending ICMP echo requests.
TraceRoute is a tool that shows you the network path between two locations. It shows you the address and how long it takes to get to each hop in the path. When there is a problem with the network, traceroute can often be used to narrow down where the problem is occurring. This form will do a traceroute from this server to another location. Enter the domain name or IP address of the other location in the text entry box.
An operation of sending trace packets for determining information; traces the route of UDP packets for the local host to a remote host. Normally traceroute displays the time and location of the route taken to reach its destination computer.
A command available in almost all operating systems. It is a network command which you can use to trace the path between your computer and your web hosting server. It lists all network hops along the way and their average response times.Very useful for debugging network connection troubles..
a function which traces the path from one network to another
A frequently used tool that determines the path used by two computers communicating over the Internet.
A computer program that lists network hosts visited by a packed on the way to its destination. This tool is very useful for network debugging.
Print the route packets take to network host, see the section called "Other hosts".
A program (and the output of the program) that shows the path a packet takes between two points. Under UNIX it is often called traceroute, DOS users have it as tracert and MacTCP Watcher has it built in for MacOS users. There are a number of web interfaces to traceroute, including ones at Telstra, Connect.com.au, and University of Queensland (connected to Optus). There is a collection of traceroutes from and to various locations on the Gold Coast available. See also Hops
A utility that allows a user to determine the route that packets (units of data formatted for transmission on a network) follow on the Internet to arrive at a specified host computer.
A computer program that lists network hosts visited by a packet on the way to its destination. Very useful for network debugging. In windows use the command "tracert hostname" via the command prompt.
Print the route packets take to network host, see Section 10.1.2.6.
This is a diagnostic tool that helps you understand why ping fails or why applications time out. Using it, can view each hop (or gateway) on the route to your device and how long each took.
Originally a Unix program, Traceroute is now available on most platforms. Traceroute is a utility that allows you to see how and where information travels on the Net. It traces the path a packet takes as it is sent from your computer to a destination computer (such as the server for a Web site). When encountering a particularly slow Web site, a Traceroute program can help you evaluate which link in the Internet chain is responsible for the lag time.
Tool helpful to check the 'path' that one packet follows. You can use traceroute to discover the path and most of all, you can see *how long* it takes to reach you or a specific host.
A utility that records the route (the specific gateway computers at each hop) through the Internet between your computer and a specified destination computer. It also calculates and displays the amount of time each hop took. Traceroute is a handy tool both for understanding where problems are in the Internet network and for getting a detailed sense of the Internet itself.
Traceroute is a UNIX communication program that is used to see the route packets take to network host. This program attempts to trace the route an IP packet would follow to some internet host by launching UDP probe packets with a small ttl (time to live) then listening for an ICMP "time exceeded" reply from a gateway. It starts its probes with a ttl of one and increase by one until it gets an ICMP "port unreachable" (which means it has got to "host") or hit a max of 30 hops. Traceroute will start its probe using UDP port number 33434. Traceroute hopes that nothing is listening on UDP ports 33434 to 33463 at the destination host (so an ICMP PORT_UNREACHABLE message will be returned to terminate the route tracing).
A Unix command that precisely locates a server that is slowing down transmission on the Internet.
A program available on many systems which traces the path a packet takes to a destination. It is mostly used to debug routing problems between hosts. There is also a traceroute protocol defined in RFC 1393.
A tool used to determine the specific path taken between two specific computers on the Internet. Traceroute is useful for trying to identify performance problems on the Internet.
A utility to view the path a packet takes on the way from the current host to your target host. Traceroute allows you to investigate which node on this way is responsible for a drop in performance.
A utility that allows you to find out how many routers are between your host and another Internet host. See also hop-check.
An Internet utility that describes the path in real-time from the client machine to the remote host being contacted. It reports the IP addresses of all the routers in between. Windows comes with its own Traceroute utility (TRACERT.EXE) that is executed from the command line.
A TCP/IP program common to UNIX that traces the route between your machine and a remote host.
