VisualRoute 2009 is available in several specialized editions, including options for on-demand and continuous connectivity analysis, and 2-way connection testing to/from remote customer desktops or multiple points on a global network.
# Graphical View of Traceroute, Ping, Reverse DNS Connectivity Analysis
Results from several essential network diagnostic tools are integrated into an overall connectivity report, providing a graphical view of connection performance report including packet loss and latency for each network hop. Drill-down detail is easily visible with a mouse over any network hop.
# IP Location Reporting
The physical geographical locations of network servers and routers is key information for understanding routing problems, viewing the actual route path on global map provides an instant of picture of routing efficiency and distances. Try an IP trace online.
# Whois Lookups, Network Provider Reporting
Get instant lookups of domain information from worldwide databases, so you can see the registered owner of an IP address or domain. See the contact information for the company providing Internet access for each hop of a network route, so you can easily report network problems.
# OmniPath Multiple Path Discovery
Get real-time views of all possible routes to a destination and easily compare the performance of different routes. The common use of load-balancers creates multiple paths that data packets may travel between the source and destination. OmniPath discovers the various paths, enables you to easily see which routes are the fastest/slowest, have the highest/lowest packet loss, or have the highest probability. More info.
# NetVu Multiple Route Topology Graph
See a high-level view of all network routes for open trace reports, enabling easily identification of network nodes that are common to multiple routes, and network routes that have multiple path options due to load balancers or router configurations.
NetVu enables you to consistently monitor all possible paths between the source and destination for mutiple routes in a single diagram, view the common nodes, and locate single points of failure. The diagram updates wheneven a new trace is performed, when used with the continuous trace option you can easily check the health of your network by viewing changes in the diagram. More info.
# Application Port Testing, Port Probing, DNS Peformance Testing
Trace specific application ports to test if your critical applications are up and responding as expected. VisualRoute measures and reports on DNS (domain name service) response time, which can have a significant effect on connectivity performance.
# Traceroute Tests from Visualware Servers
Test from Visualware servers in Washington and London to test connectivity to your servers or network devices. This capability provides additional testing points to help identify network routes and network providers causing poor performance. Try a traceroute test now.
# Continuous Connection Testing with Report History
Continuous network testing from the VisualRoute desktop to another network location supports automated cycling of connectivity tests to monitor performance degradation that may occur over long periods of time.
# Reverse Traces from Remote Desktops Help Resolve Customer Connectivity Problems
The SupportPro Edition enables support staff to test connectivity in both directions: to/from the VisualRoute desktop and to/from remote systems. This capability provides visibility to connectivity problems that occur in one direction only, such as from the customer location to your server -- problems that are otherwise very difficult to pinpoint without imposing on the customer or traveling to the remote location. The SupportPro Edition utilizes remote agents to make reverse tracing a quick and easy process.
# IPv6 Compatibility
IPv6 is the next generation of the Internet Protocol, the system by which data is transferred across the Internet. VisualRoute 2009 enables traces to IPv6 addresses, including IPv6 domain and network provider lookups.
