Traceroute is an essential network diagnostic tool that allows users to trace the path that packets take across a network. By analyzing the results of a traceroute, network administrators can identify potential sources of network problems and troubleshoot connectivity issues. Traceroute is a command-line tool that is available on most Linux distributions. It can also be downloaded and used on Windows and Mac operating systems. The syntax for traceroute is as follows:

traceroute [options] destination

The destination can be an IP address or a hostname. The most common options used with traceroute are: - **-m max_hops**: Specifies the maximum number of hops to trace. - **-n**: Numeric output. - **-q n**: Quiets the output. - **-s src_addr**: Specifies the source address to use. - **-t**: TCP mode. - **-u**: UDP mode.

Traceroute for Linux : New implementation of the traceroute utility for modern Linux systems. Backward compatible with the traditional traceroute. Supports both IPv4 and IPv6, additional types of trace (including TCP), allows some traces for unprivileged users.
