How to Install and Run MTR Report

In this article, we will demonstrate how to install MTR on a CentOS server. MTR is a powerful tool that combines the traceroute and ping utilities, allowing our support team to get a clear picture of where traffic is flowing across the Internet to our network. MTR Reports are useful in diagnosing latency issues.

Install MTR

1. Login to your server over SSH or KVM

2. Run the following command:

yum update && yum -y install mtr

You have now successfully installed MTR on your dedicated server.

Run MTR Report

To make a report for use by admins or by Rad Web Hosting Support technicians, run the following command:

mtr -rw

To test the route from your server to another location, replace with the IP address you wish to diagnose.
