SolarWinds Democratizes Network Path Analysis with Release of Traceroute NG Free Tool

According to a recent press release, “SolarWinds®, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today 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. After its introduction 30 years ago, Traceroute quickly became an indispensable diagnostic tool for troubleshooting networks. Over time, however, it has not adequately evolved to keep pace with modern networks and hybrid IT environments, limiting its usefulness. As a result, users lacked an easy tool for ad hoc network troubleshooting short of investing in a full monitoring solution.”

The release goes on, “With the new Traceroute NG, SolarWinds is offering a free replacement for this popular, but obsolete tool. 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.”
