Free Network Diagnostic Tools
Network diagnostic tools, as the name suggests, are used in diagnosis and troubleshooting the network problems. These tools can be used to check the availability, route, and health of a system in network using ICMP and SNMP.
Tools included under network diagnostics are:
- Ping Tool: Helps in discovering the status of a network device, that is whether the device is alive or not.
- SNMP Ping: Checks whether a node is SNMP-enabled or not.
- Proxy Ping: Enables you to ping a target device using a Cisco router.
- Trace Route: Records the route followed in the network between the senders computer and a specific destination computer.
