 for traceroute
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

      A TCP/IP utility, originally Unix, which
     allows the user to determine the route packets are taking
     to a particular host.  Traceroute works by increasing the
     "{time to live" value of packets and seeing how far they get,
     until they reach the given destination; thus, a lengthening
     trail of hosts passed through is built up.
