Tracing the route from the switch to a host address

The traceroute command enables you to trace the route from the switch to a host address.

This command outputs information for each (router) hop between the switch and the destination address. Note that every time you execute traceroute, it uses the same default settings unless you specify otherwise for that instance of the command.


Lists the IP address or hostname of each hop in the route, plus the time in microseconds for the traceroute packet reply to the switch for each hop.


For information about traceroute6, see the IPv6 configuration guide for your switch.
