mtr combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping'
programs in a single network diagnostic tool.
It investigates the network connection between the
runs on and a user-specified destination host. After
it determines the address of each network hop between the
machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to
determine the quality of the link to each machine.† As it does
this, it prints running statistics about each machine.
