Traceroute Settings

Traceroute is used when the next hop is not available for SSH/Telnet. Devices discovered using traceroute are marked as unmanaged in IP Fabric site diagrams. More information about traceroute as a protocol can be found on Wikipedia.

For traceroute configuration, go to Settings → Discovery & Snapshots → Discovery Settings → Discovery → Traceroute settings.

Traceroute settings

Protocol – The protocol used for traceroute. Can be selected from the options of ICMP (MS Windows-like), UDP (Linux-like), or TCP.

Port – In the case of UDP and TCP, the destination port can be specified.
