TraceRoute (TraceRt)

Sometimes you know that things are not working, and you need to find out where the fault is occurring.. The cousin of PING, TRACERT, will show you where the problem is. This means that if you are not getting a connection to something or someone out there on a network, the TRACERT command can tell you if the address will be resolved to a host name, and if it is timing out or getting to the destination.

Figure 443: TraceRt Command Options

 


Running a TRACERT against the Australian Government website will show us where our connection begins to slow down.


Figure 444: TraceRt Command Output

 


As Figure 444 shows, hop 8 has an average ping response time far higher than the previous hops. In this instance a slower response time is to be expected from a device on the opposite side of the world, but on a local network this would be a clear indication of a connectivity problem.
