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:
- Source (Ad-hoc only, required): The Agent that will conduct the test.
- Destination (Ad-hoc only, required): The IP address or hostname of the remote device.
- Interval (Target-based test only, required): The number of seconds between two consecutive Traceroute queries. By default, the interval is 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. The default value 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.
- Queries per-hop (ad-hoc only): The number of queries per hop. The default value is 3
- TOS DSCP/PHB Class (optional): The DSCP value to be applied to the Traceroute packets. There is no default value.
