This article describes the Traceroute test that can be run in the Diagnostics page within the Datto Networking Appliance's (DNA) GUI.

A Traceroute will outline the path that a packet takes from one network to another. Each hop, and the time taken to reach it, will be displayed.

To access the Traceroute tool, log into the DNA web interface, and click Diagnostics, as shown in Figure 1.

  1. Target Address: This field allows you to define what IP address or host will be used for the Traceroute.
  2. Source Interface: Allows you specify what interface is used for the test.
  3. Num Probes: This field allows you to input how many UDP probes are utilized during the Traceroute. The default is 2.
  4. Don't Fragment Bit: Packets used in the Traceroute may be fragmented, or broken down to ensure it can pass through a hop that requires a smaller maximum transmission unit (MTU). Toggling this setting on will prevent these packets from being fragmented. This is left off by default.
