MTR is a traceroute tool that tests the network connections or path between your physical location and your hosting server. Combining the functionality of ping and traceroute, mtr allows you to constantly poll a remote server and see how the latency and performance changes over time. MTR is not installed by default on most systems. You can get it by typing the following commands.

Ubuntu/Debian:

sudo apt-get install mtr

CentOS/Fedora:

yum install mtr

Once it is installed, you can call it by typing:

mtr lg.hostens.com

If you are looking for Windows based MTR please refer here.
