Description Fabian Affolter 2012-10-21 14:52:30 UTC
Spec URL:

Project URL:

Paris Traceroute is a fundamental upgrade to the standard Traceroute tool
that exists on all of the major operating systems. Standard Traceroute was
not designed to take into account the presence of load balancing routers,
which are widely deployed in today’s Internet, both at the core and at its
edges. As a result, standard Traceroute is not aware that there are often
multiple paths between a source and a destination in the Internet: the
paths will split at a load balancing router at one point along the route
and then reconverge some hops later. Standard traceroute is incapable of
furnishing this information to its users and instead reports what it states
to be a single path but is instead a confusing mixture of pieces of multiple
paths. Paris Traceroute is aware of the multiple paths and can report on any
single one of them accurately, as well as on all of them.

Comment 1 Michael S. 2012-10-23 07:12:46 UTC
A few notes :
- could you ask to upstream to clean his tarball, as there is binary 
distributed within ?
- while on it, the high level of warning of gcc do not seems good, so
if you could make upstream aware of them, it would be better
- I would also recommend to add a license header in every file, for various
reasons ( like people doing cut and paste of the whole file )

None of this is blocking so package is approved.
