Matt's Traceroute: combined traceroute and ping tool.

# To traceroute to a host and continuously ping all intermediary hops:
mtr <host>

# To disable IP address and host name mapping:
mtr -n <host>

# To generate output after pinging each hop 10 times:
mtr -w <host>

# To force IP IPv4 or IPV6:
mtr -4 <host>

# To wait for a given time (in seconds) before sending another packet to the same hop:
mtr -i <seconds> <host>

# To display the Autonomous System Number (ASN) for each hop:
mtr --aslookup <hostname>
