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.
