What is visual traceroute? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

A visual traceroute is the process of mapping the hop-by-hop paths that IP packets use to travel to specific destination in your network. With Obkio Vision, this process results in a visual display of the IP traceroute pathway and the precise location of any packet slowdowns.

How does visual traceroute work? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

Visual traceroute works by analyzing the data packet transmission time for each hop between the source computer and the destination. Traceroute monitor each segment of the path to calculate the real and typical transmission times in order to identify a current or past network slowdown.

Why is visual traceroute important? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

Visual traceroute allows network administrators to quickly diagnose network slowdowns and outages and ensure optimal end-user experience. Visual traceroutes pinpoint the location of delays in responses and routing loops and allow admins to troubleshoot the correct network device or segment.

What does a visual traceroute tool do? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down
