SolarWinds unveiled SolarWinds Traceroute NG, a free network diagnostic tool that effectively maps hop-by-hop performance across modern, hybrid networks and through firewalls.

The new free tool enables IT professionals and network administrators to monitor performance and pinpoint bottlenecks rapidly across networks connecting critical services and applications, whether these resources are running on-premises or in the cloud.

With the new Traceroute NG, SolarWinds is offering a free replacement for Traceroute. The company leveraged its cutting-edge NetPath technology to deliver next-generation diagnostics that are fully functional for use with modern networks and security architectures. Traceroute NG will empower customers to troubleshoot network issues more effectively with data that shows accurate path information. It simulates real application traffic to map paths across networks and through firewalls, delivering results in seconds and showing a live view of changes in latency and packet loss when network routes change.

“Network performance is the currency of user experience, as well as business performance in many cases, so it’s imperative that IT professionals can get accurate data to effectively manage responsiveness and availability,” said Christoph Pfister, EVP and Head of Products, SolarWinds. “With Traceroute NG, we’ve replaced a fan-favorite tool with something that really works on modern hybrid IT networks. We’re confident it will become the tool IT pros use first when troubleshooting their networks and applications.”

SolarWinds Traceroute NG integrates new functionalities and capabilities designed for the latest technologies and networks.

Features include:

- Accurate path analysis and visibility via CLI from the source to the destination, with the ability to identify the number of hops, respective IP addresses, host names, packet loss, and latency

- Continuous probing to see path changes easily

- Ability to switch the probe type with various command arguments to imitate real application traffic

- Creation of a log file containing the path number and trace information

The SolarWinds Traceroute NG free tool is available immediately for systems with Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2016.
