Tool: VisualRoute Trace

VisualRoute is a graphical tool that determines where and how traffic is flowing on the route between the desired destination and the user trying to access it, by providing a geographical map of the route, and the performance on each portion of that route.

VisualRoute delivers the functionality of key Internet "ping," "whois," and "traceroute" tools, in a visually integrated package. In addition, VisualRoute has the ability to identify the geographical location of routers, servers, and other IP devices. This is valuable information for identifying the source of network intrusions and Internet abusers. It helps in establishing the identify of the originating network, the web software that a server is running, detecting routing loops and identifying hosts that have the ICMP TTL bug.

VisualRoute's traceroute provides three types of data: an overall analysis, a data table, and a geographical view of the routing. The analysis is a brief description in of the number of hops, areas where problems occurred, and the type of Web server software running at the destination site. The data table lists information for each hop, including the IP address, node name, geographical location and the major Internet backbone where each server resides.

The World map gives a graphical representation of the actual path of an Internet connection. Users can zoom in/out and move the map around to position it as desired. A mouse click on a server or network name opens a pop-up window with the whois information including name, telephone and email address, providing instant contact information for problem reporting.
