General information when running a MTR

The MTR will allow us to identify the route your traffic is taking to your server and any issues in between.

The most helpful response is a text report provided in the ticket you have open with us regarding your issue.

Please let the report run for at least 180 seconds as this is time required for an accurate report.

A report from your current connection to your service is the most helpful.

A report from your server to your home IP will also be very beneficial in finding the issue efficiently. (You can find your IP by visiting http://whatismyip.org)
