SolarWinds TraceRoute NG Review

SolarWinds Traceroute NG Review

Traceroute NG is a standalone free tool that offers fast and accurate network path analysis using TCP and ICMP probing, typically returning results in mere seconds.

The original traceroute is one of the world’s most popular network troubleshooting tools but it works poorly in today’s networks. SolarWinds fixed the many issues in the original traceroute with this stellar tool you must have and here’s why:

Traceroute NG yields data via CLI single path analysis including; the number of hops from endpoint to endpoint, each device IP address, the fully qualified domain name or FQDN, packet loss as a percentage, current and average latency, probe run-time, probe type used, and any issues such as path change or inability to reach the destination.

It provides deeper insights from your source connection to an external destination site or service and helps you obtain endpoint to endpoint pathway analysis, fast.

Traceroute NG is a super fast way to get accurate performance results for a network path in a text format that’s easy to share.
