Traceroute is a network test that enables an agent to verify the network path traversed to reach a destination device. The test also measures Round Trip Time (RTT) of each router in the path. The Traceroute function included in NetBeez can run TCP, UDP, and ICMP-based tests.
Traceroute tests can be configured on the Target Setup form.
You can also run an ad-hoc traceroute test with Ad-Hoc Testing.
Input the following information:
- Destination (required for version 0.11.1 or and earlier, determined via Resource in version 0.11.2): The IP address or hostname of the remote device.
- Count (required): How many Traceroute tests the agent should run before exiting. The default value is 0.
- Leave it to 0 if it's a permanent/ongoing test.
- Specify the number of packets to send before exiting.
- Interval (required): The number of seconds between two consecutive Traceroute queries. By default the interval is set to 60 seconds.
- Test type (required): Chose between UDP, TCP and ICMP.
- Advanced options (optional): Click the checkbox if advanced options are required.
- PORT number (optional): For UDP and TCP, sets the base port number
used in probes (default is 33434).
- Timeout per hop (optional): The number of seconds that the agent will wait for a response from the router(s) in the path. The default value is 2 seconds.
- Max hops (optional): The maximum number of routers traversed to reach the destination. The default value is 30 hops.
- TOS DSCP/PHB Class (optional): The DSCP value to be applied to the traceroute packets. There is no default value.
