How to run MTR report on Ubuntu

by Ruchira on April 2, 2013



MTR its a well known network diagnostic tool which you can use to troubleshoot connectivity problems on your network or servers. As the official web site for MTR says

mtr combines the functionality of the ‘traceroute’ and ‘ping’ programs in a single network diagnostic tool.¬†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.


Here is how you can install MTR tool and run diagnostics on Ubuntu environment

Run the command below on terminal to install mtr tool

sudo apt-get install mtr

Thats it. To run reports run this command ( Replace is the host that you want to diagnose )


It will display the report as you can see on top of this post.
