Graphical version of 'traceroute'

Xtraceroute is a graphical version of the traceroute program, which traces the route your IP packets travel to their destination. It displays the routes on a rotating globe (you can also move the globe around) as a series of yellow lines between 'sites', shown as small balls of different colors.
