This subchapter looks at traceroute, a UNIX (and Linux) command.
traceroute is used to obtain the entire path to a server or host.
Type traceroute followed by a doman name.
$ traceroute www.osdata.com
You can use traceroute to diagnose network problems. When some people can access your website and other cant, then traceroute can help you find the break or error along the network path.
traceroute puts a load on every server in the path to the selected host. Therefore, only use traceroute when you need the diagnosis.
In June 2009, Ken Milberg named this command as one of the Top 50 universal UNIX commands at this web page Top 50 Universal INIX commands. Note that this web page requires agreeing to be spammed before you can read it.
