Home > Blossary: My traceroute
Linux MTR command:: If you’re serious about Linux and the command line, you’ve no doubt used ping to diagnose and troubleshoot your Internet connection. And if you’re serious about Linux and the command line, you’ve no doubt also used traceroute to diagnose your Internet connection. If you’ve wished for a tool that combined both Ping and Tracertoute, you’re in luck. The tool is called MTR, for Matt’s Traceroute. It’s named after Matt Kimball, the original developer. Roger Wolff has been the maintainer since 1998. MTR combines the functions of both the standard programs ping and traceroute. Like ping, it sends ICMP requests to a destination, either a domain name or an IP address, and listens for the destination to answer back. Like Traceroute, it also works by setting the Time To Live (TTL), or the number of maximum hops a packet can take over the network, to a low number, increasing with each attempt. This determines the route packets are taking to a destination along the way. The information will update continuously for as long as MTR runs.
