How Does Traceroute Work?

Traceroute is a network diagnostic tool for showing the path and measuring latency of packets as they travel through Internet. It helps to identify network hops around the world that make your service slow or unreachable to your clients.

Traceroute maps and aggregates packets as they travel from our monitoring nodes to your host(s) and shows packet lost and latency.
