This diagnostic tool makes Ping routines both more effective and more entertaining. Navigating the world map is quite easy, as is choosing a map with another design. VisualRoute generates complete Ping and Whois information with time graphs, which administrators can export to text or HTML reports, or to a JPEG screenshot.
Happily, the program consumes much less system memory than it did in the past and doesn t appear to affect performance in any way. The map's route tracing can be fascinating, and the results table offers a wealth of information everywhere you click. The program also can monitor response time.
You can even run VisualRoute as a Web server and embed it in your pages. For less experienced users, the analysis section explains in plain English what's going wrong in the trace. In short, this program seems like a good pick for any Webmaster.
