network traceroute

Traceroute

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The network traceroute command performs a network probe from a node to a specified IP address. The command requires a source node or logical interface and a destination IP address. You can specify the source node by name, or specify a logical interface and its Vserver. The traceroute is performed between the source and destination.

Parameters

{ -node <nodename> - Node
Use this parameter to originate the traceroute from the node you specify.
| -lif <lif-name>} - Logical Interface
Use this parameter to originate the traceroute from the specified network interface.
-vserver <vserver> - LIF Owner
Use this parameter to originate the traceroute from the Vserver where the intended logical interface resides. The default value is the system Vserver for cluster administrators.
-destination <Remote InetAddress> - Destination
Use this parameter to specify the remote internet address destination of the traceroute.
[-maxttl | -m <integer>] - Maximum Number of Hops
Use this parameter to specify the maximum number of hops (time-to-live) setting used by outgoing probe packets. The default is 30 hops.
[-numeric | -n [true]] - Print Hop Numerically
Use this parameter to print the hop addresses only numerically rather than symbolically and numerically.
[-port <integer>] - Base UDP Port Number
Use this parameter to specify the base UDP port number used in probes. The default is port 33434.
[-packet-size <integer>] - Packet Size
Use this parameter to specify the size of probe packets, in bytes.
[-nqueries | -q <integer>] - Number of Queries
Use this parameter to specify the number of probes per hop. The default is 3 probes.
[-verbose | -v [true]] - Verbose Output
Use this parameter to display all received ICMP packets, rather than just TIME_EXCEEDED and UNREACHABLE packets.
[-waittime | -w <integer>] - Wait Between Packets (secs)
Use this parameter to specify the time (in seconds) to wait for the response to a probe. The default is 5 seconds.

Examples

This example shows a traceroute from node node1 to a destination address of 10.98.16.164, showing a maximum of five hops.
