3d Traceroute: One Of The "cool"-er Tools

Recommended Posts

Any body use this cool tool named 3DTraceRoute ? I've been using it for a long while now. Sometimes, when you get really tired looking at a dull console spitting out hops vs. millisecond response times at you - this is what adds a touch of colours and enlivens your mind :P I'd say it's always a nice addition to have in your toolbox - more so, coz the lite version is FREE.


It does exactly what the title suggests - draws 3D area graphs of your traceroute in realtime (works surprisingly well on even pathetic graphics cards - like mine) and gives you a hop vs. millisecond display - nicely color coded in red/green/yellow to mark out "unreachable hosts" and smoothly connecting links.. The graph can be rotated along any axis, zoomed upon - throw in a bunch of other cool funky effect you can do with it.


Besides the basic traceroute client, it can also person Whois, Ping, Port Scanning, OS fingerprinting, Analyze email headers - in short quite a powerful array of tools neatly bundled into a small sack :P Another tool that deserves special mention is the ability to record and replay domain traces later on - that I find quite interesting.. has lots of possibilities in there :P
