Visual Traceroute Features
Obkio's graphical traceroute network map is a visual representation of the network paths to the destinations. Each router has its own Quality Score that helps pinpoint where the network issue is located.
History and route changes/flapping are also available to troubleshoot past intermittent network issues or outages.
Visual traceroutes offer hop-by-hop core network metrics with wide time ranges (from 5 minutes to 3 hours).
- Quality Score
- Packet Loss

Frequently Asked Questions
Obkio Vision is part of the Obkio Agent. Install the Obkio Monitoring Agent (Get started with Obkio) to get the full version.
The demo version is limited to 3 hours. The data is erased when the demo is closed. The demo web interface port is random and changes on every relaunch.
The demo is very useful to try Obkio Vision without having to install the full Obkio Monitoring Agent (Get started with Obkio). It can also be used for a few hours on any computer to help with network troubleshooting.
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.
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.
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.
A visual traceroute tool, like Obkio Vision, automates the process of discovering and mapping IP paths for troubleshooting. Obkio's Traceroute software offers an easy-to-use, color-coded graphical tracert display rather than a textual output. Leverage Obkio's visual traceroute tool to easily view packet paths, and identify and monitor network slowdowns.
Obkio Vision visual traceroute tool offers a visual, color-coded representation of the network paths to the destinations. When paired with network monitoring, it helps pinpoint where network issues are located and offers data for quick network troubleshooting.
