Bring back old TraceRoute

10.8 Traceroute is awesome. And suddenly it has been changed it to regular traceroute in just like in windows without a warning. Not Cool.

Traceroute in 10.8 looks like this

It has SNMP features and some other columns.

  • Do you have NPM 12?  If so, you might discover NetPath is a fun, new alternative to Traceroute.  Not only will it work inside your organization, it also works outside, discovering BGP and path resilience and latency in ways Traceroute couldn't (and still can't) do.

    Try it if you can; I think you'll be impressed at what it can reveal about your Internet and WAN services.  It's different, but I've been able to leverage its ability to track historical route/path/latency changes to get my WAN and Internet providers to fix problems that they claimed were some other company's issues, not theirs.
