mtr: Matt's TraceRoute1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Mtr combines the functionality of the traceroute and ping programs in a single network diagnostic tool. It has a curses and a gtk+ based interface.

As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine.
