mtr does ping and traceroute in one go – bold/red lines are for non-responding hosts

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/19

I learned about mtr via [WayBackBufferbloat Demystified – Andrew Clunis which I found via  [WayBack] Älterer Artikel, der Bufferbload und erklärt. – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

mtr is cool:

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

Running it, I saw occasional bold lines that were not mentioned in the README, but after a search in the repo I found it to be in documented NEWS:

Draw names in red (GTK) or bold (Curses) if host doesn’t respond.

Some times from here across to California back when I still had ADSL:

ADSL - xs4all
