The traceroute command displays information on the route IPv4/IPv6 packets. You can use this command to determine the path of an IPv4/IPv6 query. This command provides information on the path packets travel and the time it takes to reach the IPv4/IPv6 destination address.


traceroute {hostname | ip_address} [ opt ]

hostname Fully qualified domain name
ip_address Valid IPv4/IPv6 address of the host
opt Can be any of the following:
  • numerical (specifies to not interpret the IP address as a DNS name)
  • src_addr (specifies the starting or "from" address)
  • ICMP (specifies to use ping)
  • v6 (specifies IPv6 hostname)


The following example shows you how to use the traceroute command.
