Measurement Tools

Traceroute-like Tools: traceroute, MTR, PingPlotter, lft, tracepath, traceproto

There is a large and growing number of path-measurement tools derived from the well-known traceroute tool. Those tools all attempt to find the route a packet will take from the source (typically where the tool is running) to a given destination, and to find out some hop-wise performance parameters along the way.

Bandwidth Measurement Tools: pchar, Iperf, bwctl, nuttcp, Netperf, RUDE/CRUDE, ttcp, NDT, DSL Reports

Use: Evaluate the Bandwidth between two points in the network.

Active Measurement Boxes

Use: information about Delay, Jitter and packets loss between two probes.

Passive Measurement Tools

These tools perform their measurement by looking at existing traffic. They can be further classified into
