The traceroute tool shows you the path network traffic takes from your PC to a target server or device and displays SNMP information about the devices it discovers. traceroute adds real time response time and packet loss information as a constantly refreshing bar graph and can often determine the enter of machine over many hops through the public network.

after a route is learned, the SolarWinds traceroute remembers the route and details about it. Since the routes are remembered, Traceroute can show you route and failing devices whenever part of the network is down. Each hop in the selected path is traced and processed concurrently.

Ensure you review the settings. With traceroute you can collect basic PING time, but also advanced information like system OID, community string, location, and other valuable information. For more information, see “Modify Trace Route settings”.

The deprecated version of traceroute still exists in the Toolset Installation folder, the default location is \Program Files\SolarWinds\Toolset. The name has been changed to Deprecated_TraceRoute.exe.

For more information about the currently supported version of this tool, see Traceroute.

Enter the host name or IP address to trace in the field, and then click Trace.
