#9: Nice Trace
|Nice Trace is a remote traceroute
application created by developer Pavel Ahafonau and designed to let admins monitor network issues
without being in the office. The app tracks the network route to a host site and screens any issues
along the way, such as bottlenecking and other network connectivity problems.
Devices: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
Features: Real-time monitoring, bottleneck monitoring, network origin and range detection, packet generation and loss detection
Reviewers give Nice Trace a 3 out of 5 star rating, though some have noted a confusing color scheme and small font size that can at times make the screen difficult to read.
