Run a traceroute in macOS

If you are running macOS X, use Terminal to run the trace route.

  1. Launch Terminal (found in the Applications > Utilities folder).
  2. In the Terminal window, enter traceroute www.myDomainName, where myDomainName is the domain (plus its suffix, like .com) you want to trace.
  3. Press Return. The trace route appears in the Terminal window. The trace route is complete when you see the name of your Mac (like "My-MacBook") at the end of the numbered list.
  4. Select the results, and then right-click and select Copy or press COMMAND+C to copy the text.
  5. Paste the text into a text editor (such as TextEdit) and save the file.
