A Traceroute check runs traceroute from probes to targets. You can trace the path of a request through the Internet, and get more detailed information about how your requests are flowing through the public internet.
Traceroute check can be useful to visualize network path, see how that path is changing over time, and how it’s reaching the destination.
Traceroute checks have the following additional settings:
|Max hops||Maximum number of hops before giving up|
|Max unknown hops||Maximum number of unknown hops before giving up|
|PTR lookup||Perform a reverse lookup from IP to hostname|
These configuration options do not produce any additional labels in the resulting metrics.
|probe_all_duration_seconds||Returns how long the probe took to complete in seconds (histogram)|
|probe_all_success||Displays whether or not the probe was a success (summary)|
|probe_duration_seconds||Returns how long the probe took to complete in seconds|
|probe_success||Displays whether or not the probe was a success|
|probe_traceroute_packet_loss_percent||Overall percentage of packet loss during the traceroute|
|probe_traceroute_route_hash||Hash of all the hosts in a traceroute path. Used to determine route volatility.|
|probe_traceroute_total_hops||Total hops to reach a traceroute destination|
|sm_check_info||Provides information about a single check configuration|
