TracePing

TracePing


TracePing is a network diagnostic tool which combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping' programs and is similar to MTR(MyTraceroute), WinMtr.

First, it finds the path between your device and any internet server and then starts to send periodical echo requests to each host on the way, gathering round trip time statistics.

TracePing is very useful to investigate network problems, to find out where exactly is the connection bottleneck or a failure.

Features:
• A list of recently used hosts.
• IP selection for multiple IP hosts
• Visual traceroute: IP geo location and map plotting (optional)
• Extended statistics panel with min/avg/max ping, jitter and StDev
• Works on both WiFi and 3G/GPRS connection.
• Internationalized domains (IDN) are supported
• Share report
• Pause/restart ping
• Switching between IP and hostnames
• Tuneable interval, timeout, packet size, ping count and hop limit parameters
• Experimental IPv6 support (Needs root, because ping6 executable has no SUID bit on Android 4.0)

Notes:
• Root is not necessary (except IPv6 hosts)
• Currently doesn't work on devices without 'ping' executable.
• 100% loss usually means that ICMP packets are blocked on this host or it is down.

Please send all questions and bug reports to support email below. Bug

WARNING: may not work on some devices and with busybox ping
IP geo location is provided by maxmind lite city db, accuracy is about 60%

Recent changes:
Version 2.0.*:
• IP Geo Location and map plotting
• new interface
• advanced parameters:
• share report
• possible to set ping interval to 200 (ms) or more

The closest to MTR you will get on Android. For those who wants an MTR tool an Android, this is it.

Awesome Almost similar capability with MTR on Linux. Very cool

Shows promise Seems to report more dropped packets than it should. Also, couldn't get geolocation for any of the hosts I tried. With a little more work, this will be a great app.

Reasonable but needs improvement For some reason the phone always reports the first ping back being dropped. Subsequent pings get through without any difficulty, so this would suggest an issue with the program itself, rather than the network. The Map function while working does not use accurate GeoIP info, consequently it was telling me Virgin's mail servers are in London, when they are not.

Doesn't show anything on the map...
