WinMTR – How to Run an MTR Test on Windows and Linux


Are You Having Trouble Connecting To Tempest or Experience Latency Issues? Running My Traceroute Tests Could Be Extremely Helpful | Linux Version This article will show how to Run an MTR on both Operating Systems (Windows and Linux), and understand its results.

MTR is a free and open source program that combines the features of both ping and traceroute into one lightweight package. MTR sends out ICMP packets to a target host and waits until their expiry, gathering information about its state, connectivity and responsiveness from intermediate hosts along the route.

Use MTR on any operating system – Mac OS X, Linux and Windows included! You have several modes available when running MTR; report mode is usually chosen as it runs for as many cycles specified with –c and prints statistics before exiting, making this mode popular when performing ping tests.

The MTR command allows you to specify how many and what size ping packets to send, which will impact how quickly first pings reach their destinations server. You can also set how many retries will occur before the MTR test stops and this may help determine where any issues lie within DNS name resolution. Retry counts can be extremely helpful in pinpointing where an issue exists on any particular hop in order to solve them quickly and efficiently.

An MTR can be especially helpful when diagnosing intermittent packet loss. A full MTR will identify where exactly this loss occurs on each hop and where exactly it originates – important information when diagnosing problems that might originate upstream or local router.

When viewing MTR outputs it is ideal to organize them chronologically from latest reports up through oldest reports at the bottom. This will enable you to see if the issue has worsened over time or improved.

WinMTR is an easy way to quickly obtain MTR output on Windows and provides a graphical user interface for performing MTR tests. Simply enter the IP or domain name of the host you wish to test, click Start, stop the test when complete and export results into text format before responding with it in your ticket with Tempest Hosting Support; we’d appreciate seeing an MTR report as part of any reply!
