Traceroute in Go

A traceroute library written in Go.

Must be run as sudo on OS X (and others)?


go build cmd/gotraceroute
sudo ./gotraceroute example.com


See the code in cmd/gotraceroute.go for an example of how to use the library from within your application.

The traceroute.Traceroute() function accepts a domain name and an options struct and returns a TracerouteResult struct that holds an array of TracerouteHop structs.

  • question for you...

    question for you...

    In my company we have to do a lot of end to end testing to make sure that the packets can get from point A to point B -- and many times there is a firewall blocking. I wrote a tool to check the connectivity in Go that will ping the endpoint on a given port, and respond back if the port is open, closed or if it times out. Usually if it times out I'll consider it to be blocked by a firewall. Then we have to traceroute to find out where the packet gets blocked. I am not sure if there is a way to tell from a packet what device that packet timed out on. It would be nice for my tool to return that the packet was blocked, and on what device that packet was blocked by.

  • Implement first hop option

    Implement first hop option

    traceroute should offer the possibilty to set the first hop that should be used. This is done by setting the ttl to a given value before starting the loop.

    while ping is going run traceroute to any other host you will see entries of icmp requests from the ping to the initial host.
