Mtr - Network monitoring tool

Registered 2005-07-20 by Registry Administrators

Mtr is a full screen ncurses and X11 traceroute and ping tool.

Mtr combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping' programs in a single network diagnostic tool.

As Mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine.
