How to Install and Perform an MTR Report on linux?

MTR is a powerful tool that combines the traceroute and ping utilities, allowing server administrators to get a clear picture of where the traffic is flowing across the Internet to our powerful infrastructure. Below are the steps to install MTR on a CentOS server:

1.) Login to your server over SSH.

2.) Run the following command:  

yum -y  install mtr


That’s it! You should now have MTR installed on your CentOS server.

To make a report for use by admins or by Temok's Support Team, run the following command:

mtr -rw  server.hostname.com (or IP address)


Using this tool we can figure out where along the traffic path you may be experiencing issues.
