'mtr' combines the functionality of both 'traceroute' and 'ping'. The program investigates the network connection between the host it runs on and a user-specified destination host. After determining 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.
