MTR is a great command line utility for finding routing issues and packet loss to and from a host.
NodePing's MTR check can be tuned for unreliable connections. Set the packet loss percentage threshold to your desired limit and we'll alert you if the packet loss is higher than that. The check will run an MTR with a 10 packet count. Enabled 'Automated Diagnostics' so you can see the full MTR output in your status report when a failure happens.
You should use MTR checks when you want to be alerted on routing or packet loss to a host.
To set up a MTR check,
If you set up a new MTR check and it fails with 100% packet loss right away, please contact your system administrator or hosting provider and ensure ICMP traffic is allowed to your host
If your host has both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, you'll need two separate PING checks - one for each.
