WhatRoute

2.2.7
06 October 2019

Geographically trace online data-packet routes.

Overview

WhatRoute is designed to find the names of all the routers an IP packet passes through on its way from your Mac to a destination host. It also measures the round-trip time from your Mac to the router, thus enabling you to determine slow links--or hops--in the Internet. WhatRoute can also find dead links, such as routers that don't respond.

  • A geo-location server is queried and the locations of the hosts discovered in a trace or seen active on the LAN, can be plotted on a low resolution map or viewed in high resolution on Google Earth
  • WhatRoute also provides network and port scanning, ping, whois, DNS, and LAN monitoring functions.
  • Find the ASN with which a network is registered and the networks with which it peers.
  • View network flows

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

The description needs to be improved. Looking at the description alone, the application seems nothing more than a GUI wrapper for the traceroute command line function. However, after downloading and checking the application, it comes with several other useful functions, not the least a map. The interface does need some work, though, as it seems to be straight from the OS9 era.

I pushed the map to my big tv, full screen. Fascinating to watch the flow of connections flying around on the map.

Not to fond of the layout on the program WhatRoute. I use VisualRoute, i like the layout much more and i guess because i have bought it.

A great all-in-one tool for Whois, Trace, Ping, Query, Finger, Address Scan, and Port Scan tasks. One request: It would be great if the map could be made bigger and would also show some information for Whois queries. Still, clearly a 5 star application. Thanks to the developer!

A useful tool. It could need a graphical update though. It looks more like an Mac OS 9 app than a OS X app :)

I had an old version of WhatRouteHelper running and Bryan helped me clear it out: sudo killall -9 WhatRouteHelper sudo rm -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/WhatRoute/WhatRouteHelper For some reason it didn't update properly. All is working well now.

What a weird "review". The very least would be to say why mtr is better - and especially, where go get it for OS X.

For anyone who cares, http://www.bitwizard.nl/mtr/ is the home page and it's easy to install an OS X binary using MacPorts.
