Monitis Announces Global Traceroute Service

Web System Administrators Can Instantly Check Their Networks, Implement Quick Fixes

Press Release

SAN JOSÉ, CA., June 3, 2011Monitis, the award-winning provider of the world’s first all-in-one systems monitoring cloudware, has launched a new free tool, Monitis Global Traceroute, which will enable system administrators and webmasters to instantly trace the Internet routes, or Traceroute, their networks’ server simultaneously from multiple locations.

“We’re driven to keep taking the pressure off busy Web System Administrators so that they can save time from typical IT maintenance chores and, instead, focus on more strategic issues,” said Monitis Founder and CEO Hovhannes Avoyan. “Monitis Global Traceroute puts another valuable, free tool for instant network checking in sysadmins’ hands.”

Monitis Global Traceroute, which will be available to all visitors of the Monitis website (, is a network diagnostic tool that is used to determine the “path” and transit times that packets take from one IP address to another, simultaneously from multiple global locations up to user servers.

Traceroute tools are often used for network troubleshooting. Monitis Global Traceroute can help identify routing issues or misconfigured firewalls that may be blocking ICMP/ping signals to a site. Monitis Global Traceroute can also be used by penetration testers to research network infrastructure and IP ranges around a given host. In case of multiple mirroring servers, system administrators can trace each mirror to determine which is faster for each location.

With Monitis Global Traceroute, no registration is required. System administrators need only enter the IP address or domain name of the server that they want to trace. Importantly, Monitis can perform Traceroute from its multiple testing locations across the U.S., Europe and Asia, giving systems management specialists a comprehensive picture of server and network availability from the end-user perspective. The information can be viewed in a graph or table but also via Google map.

“It’s a simple, instant server connectivity check,” noted Avoyan. “And with the provided information, system administrators and webmasters can easily track down and fix possible network issues.”

Monitis already provides no-cost services such as instant remote ping, instant full-page check and instant http check to users – with no obligation or commitment required to sign up for Monitis’ premium services.
