This program displays all that in a visually appealing way, not just through the command line. It shows a map of every hop along the way, and graphs it against a background that shows response times. Highlight any hop, and you'll see important details, such as packet loss and speed.

In addition, the program displays a narrative of the route, detailing whether the route has fast, average or slow throughput, and highlighting any problems along the way. This version of the program is free, but there are a variety of for-pay versions also available that offer many extra features, such as displaying network names of devices, testing DNS services, and more.
