What is a traceroute?
A traceroute shows the path traffic takes to reach a network resource. Our network monitoring robots send a series of packets to your target destination and display the list of routers and IPs the packets took.
Identify network problems
With the Free Uptrends Traceroute Tool, you can identify network bottlenecks. If you’re having trouble reaching a site, there might be a problem somewhere along the path.
Choose from worldwide checkpoints, and test from your users' locations. See how the paths differ per location, tackle regional problems and optimize accordingly.
Round trip times
The three times per hop being displayed are the round trip times (RTT) for a packet to reach a specific point and return to your computer.
Seeing high hop times? That could result in noticeable lag. You might want to approach your ISP or hosting provider with the result of this traceroute.
Send out the results
Use thebutton to get access to a link to your traceroute test result. Share the link with team members, or save them to review later.
