editor's review




Traceroute is a lightweight and portable software application that allows you to trace a host, as the name implies. It does not contain complicated options or configuration parameters, so it can be handled by any type of users.

Portability perks

As there is no setup pack involved, you can drop the executable file in any part of the hard disk and just click it to run.

There is also the possibility to save Traceroute to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort and no previous installers.

More importantly, the tool does not modify Windows registry settings or create extra files on the disk, leaving it clean after removal.

Simple interface and options

The GUI is plain and simple, based on a single window that does not contain any other options apart from the ones visible. All you have to do is type or paste a host address and click a button to trace it. Results can be copied to the Clipboard after making a text selection.

Evaluation and conclusion

The tool does not put a strain on PC performance, since it uses low CPU and RAM, and finishes scan jobs rapidly. However, Traceroute has not been updated for a long time; it failed to trace multiple hosts during our evaluation. Users should resort to more reliable application for tracing a host.
