VisualRoute combines the tools Traceroute, Ping, and Whois into an easy-to-use graphical interface that analyzes Internet connections to quickly locate where an outage or slowdown occurs. Analyze Internet connection performance, diagnose connectivity problems! VisualRoute helps determine if a connectivity problem is due to an ISP, the Internet, or the destination web site, and pinpoints the network where a problem occurs.
VisualRoute 2010 is available in several specialized editions, including simple options like performing a traceroute to more complicated options like on-demand and continuous connectivity analysis, and 2-way connection testing to/from remote customer desktops or multiple points on a global network. All editions include integrated traceroute, ping tests, reverse DNS and Whois lookups, and display the actual route of connections and IP address locations on a global map.
VisualRoutes Features and Benefits:
• Graphical View of Traceroute, Ping, Reverse DNS Connectivity Analysis
Results from several essential network diagnostic tools are integrated into an overall connectivity report, providing a graphical view of connection performance report including packet loss and latency for each network hop. Drill-down detail is easily visible with a mouse over any network hop.
• IP Location Reporting
The physical geographical locations of network servers and routers is key information for understanding routing problems, viewing the actual route path on global map provides an instant of picture of routing efficiency and distances. Try an IP trace online.
• Whois Lookups, Network Provider Reporting
Get instant lookups of domain information from worldwide databases, so you can see the registered ‘owner’ of an IP address or domain. See the contact information for the company providing Internet access for each hop of a network route, so you can easily report network problems.
• OmniPath Multiple Path Discovery
Get real-time views of all possible routes to a destination and easily compare the performance of different routes. The common use of load-balancers creates multiple paths that data packets may travel between the source and destination. OmniPath discovers the various paths, enables you to easily see which routes are the fastest/slowest, have the highest/lowest packet loss, or have the highest probability.
