In computing, traceroute is a computer network diagnostic tool for displaying the route (path) and measuring transit delays of packets across an Internet Protocol (IP) network. The history of the route is recorded as the round-trip times of the packets received from each successive host (remote node) in the route (path). The sum of the mean times in each hop indicates the total time spent to establish the connection. Traceroute proceeds unless all sent packets are lost more than twice, then the connection is lost and the route cannot be evaluated. Ping, on the other hand, only computes the final round-trip times from the destination point. The traceroute command is available on a number of modern operating systems. On Apple Mac OS, it is available by opening "Network Utilities" and selecting "Traceroute" tab, as well as by typing the "traceroute" command in the terminal. Traceroute is a command which can show the path a packet of information taken from a computer to another specified one. It will list all the router locations it passes through until the packet reaches its destination, or fails and is discarded. In addition to this, it will display how long each �hop� from router to router takes. To discover your connections hops and route, in Windows, select Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Enter the word tracert, followed by a space. Finally enter the domain name and run the test. This tool is extremely useful when trying to find out why a website is unreachable, as you will be able to see where exactly the connection fails. Website hosts should do a traceroute to it when it is working, so that when it fails, you can do another traceroute to it (which will probably time out if the website is unreachable) and compare them. Be aware though, that it will probably take a different route each time, but the networks it passes through will generally be very similar. It is generally recommended that if a website that is unreachable, the user should try both the traceroute and ping commands to locate the problem before contacting the ISP to complain. Oftentimes there will be nothing to your Internet Service Provider or hosting company can do about it.
