TRACEPATH

Section: Linux Programmer's Manual (8)
Updated: January 1999
Index 

NAME

tracepath - traces path to <destination> discovering MTU along this path 

SYNOPSIS

tracepathdestination [ port ] 

DESCRIPTION

It traces path to <destination> discovering MTU along this path.It uses UDP port <port> or some random port.
tracepath6 is good replacement for traceroute6
and classic example of application Linux error queues.tracepath is worse, because commercial IP routersdo not return enough information in icmp error messages.Probably, it will change, when they will be updated.For now it uses Van Jacobson's trick, sweaping a rangeof UDP ports to maintain trace history.using source address <source>.
 

WARNING

GENERAL NOTE: all these applets, except for tracepath[6]should be excecutabel only with CAP_NET_RAWIO capability.To all that I know, they are safe to be used as setuid root.
