ProtoRPC makes it easy to write consistent, reliable web interfaces that can be used, for example, to do the following:
- Create AJAX URL end-points for use by dynamic web pages and forms.
- Provide simple and understandable server-to-server communications.
- Become a back-end for command-line tools or other non-web based clients.
mtr combines the functionality of the 'traceroute' and 'ping' programs in a single network diagnostic tool.
As mtr starts, it investigates the network connection between the host mtr runs on and a user-specified destination host. After it determines the address of each network hop between the machines, it sends a sequence ICMP ECHO requests to each one to determine the quality of the link to each machine. As it does this, it prints running statistics about each machine.
