Traceroute is the program that shows you the route over the network between two systems, listing all the intermediate routers a connection must pass through to get to its destination. It can help you determine why your connections to a given server might be poor, and can often help you figure out where exactly the problem is. It also shows you how systems are connected to each other, letting you see how your ISP connects to the Internet as well as how the target system is connected.
The Traceroute Command on Cisco router:
The traceroute command is used to discover the routes that packets actually take when traveling to their destination. The device (for example, a router or a PC) sends out a sequence of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) datagrams to an invalid port address at the remote host.
Three datagrams are sent, each with a Time-To-Live (TTL) field value set to one. The TTL value of 1 causes the datagram to "timeout" as soon as it hits the first router in the path; this router then responds with an ICMP Time Exceeded Message (TEM) indicating that the datagram has expired.
Another three UDP messages are now sent, each with the TTL value set to 2, which causes the second router to return ICMP TEMs. This process continues until the packets actually reach the other destination. Since these datagrams are trying to access an invalid port at the destination host, ICMP Port Unreachable Messages are returned, indicating an unreachable port; this event signals the Traceroute program that it is finished.
Example: Router1#traceroute 220.127.116.11
If you're stuck with Windows, the command is called tracert. Open a DOS window and enter the command:
On a Unix system, including Mac OS X, run a traceroute at the command line like this:
I have retrieved a CLI template from the API and performed an update on it. In this case I replace the NTP server string. If I have no devices attached to the template, the update appears in the vManage GUI. If there are devices attached, the template doe...
if I have many routers, and there is a router in the middle impact a performance by dropping packet , ok how can I determine which one If I don't have monitoring tools ,If I did traceroute is it enough , can I do any other thing to check ,
can anyone please recommend any book that will explain ospf design very well , most of the book just talk about difference between LSAs and Areas but I need book talk about different whether have one area or many areas which one is best and why...
Hi , as all know that there is the main factor whether to add all routers 50 or more in one Area or add a different area the factor is whether routers capability and Hardware are able to handle routes and able to handle all flooding that happens...
Hello,I'm trying to enable SPAN over a 100G port for packet inspection but i can't get it to send traffic.On the N9K everything seems to be working, but on the other side i doesn't get any traffic.I enabled the SPAN with these commands :monitor session 1
