Charly takes the name of the “My Traceroute” tool very literally. The journey is the reward for this alternative TTL-measuring utility.
Been there, done that – there is no need for most network administrators to think twice about the command syntax for the traceroute command; the diagnostics tool is something you probably have a gut feeling for, and you can shake it out of your sleeve without too much human latency. On my permanent search for perfection – and because laziness is a virtue in network management – I finally stumbled across My Traceroute, or MTR for short. I immediately liked MTR: it is proud to have reached version number 0.79 after just 13 years of development – no need to rush things, after all.
