WhatRoute - Network diagnostics utility
Review by on
If you have problems with your Internet connection, WhatRoute can help you figure out what's wrong much faster. It provides a good selection of networks diagnostics tools, as well as a geo-location service, which can help you visualize packet paths. The application is capable of retrieving a huge amount of information and the best part is that it requires only a few clicks. Furthermore, WhatRoute is offered free of charge and you can have it up and running on your Mac in a matter of seconds.

The user interface presents a set of simple and easy to understand controls. All you have to do is type in a host name or IP address, choose an operation and click a button to start it. The application can be set to perform a traceroute, for the specified host, which is its primary function, but it can also ping the host, scan for addresses and ports on a network and more. A few specific tweaks can be made for each operation. For example, if you wish to ping a host, you can set a higher or lower ping count and choose between a standard ping and a flood.

Results are displayed on the same interface as plain text, which you can copy and save into a document. You can find more statistics on separate windows, which can be accessed through the Windows menu. Regardless of what operation you execute, the application can illustrate the path of the packets on a map. Additionally, you can bring up a DNS and location log, information about used resources and more.

WhatRoute offers many diagnostics tools. The application can provide you with a huge amount of information. Its controls are well organized and easy to understand.

There are no obvious drawbacks to mention.

Thanks to WhatRoute's straightforward functionality, any operation, from pinging to tracerouting, can be performed immediately, with nothing more than a few clicks.

You can download WhatRoute free here.
