Traceroute and ping are commonly provided with operating systems as tools to diagnose problems in network connectivity between systems. Another very useful took, which combines the functionality of both those other tools is My traceroute, which was originally know as Matt's traceroute, aka MTR. The software is available for Linux systems and also for Microsoft Windows sytems as WinMTR.
The software can be installed via the
management system for some Linux distributions. E.g., it can be installed on a
system with yum using the command
yum install mtr. You
can check on whether it is installed on a CentOS system with the command
rpm -qi mtr or you can just issue the command
on a Linux system.
