The correct diagnosis for your network problems
Every network – whether public or private – needs to be administered, regularly monitored and optimised. The tools on this page will help you to recognise weak points in your network or simply to ensure that everything is operating as it should be.
Users can trace the IP route from the SWITCH network to a host that they have entered. On the basis of the URL or IP address, users can accurately follow individual data packages as they travel through the Internet to a specific target host. This enables disturbances in the Internet to be rapidly localized.
Efficient error searches
Network experts can use our looking-glass server to pinpoint a range of routing problems in the Internet.

IPv6 Looking Glass
For the next IP generation
The IPv6 looking glass can be used for an even more precise analysis of IPv6 routing.

Prepared for all problems
Information on the slowest sub-connection, data congestion or package loss – administrators can obtain this and much more with the aid of the SWITCH NDT server.

Trace Next Network
Commodity or research?
Simply enter the IP address or host name of computer, and this script will show whether a SWITCH IP package is being transferred via research networks or the commercial Internet. Data traffic in the opposite direction will then most probably take the same route too.

TCP Throughput Calculator
Establishing peak performance
This tool helps to analyse the properties of a network. Using the TCP Throughput Calculator, it is possible to calculate the potential maximum data throughput, or the so-called bandwidth-delay product, of a network on the basis of certain parameters.
