    Does anyone know if there's a utility with the same functionality as pathping in OS X? If not (I suspect not), are there any applications that will achieve the same result?

    For some network diagnostics I'm doing it's helpful to see exactly where packet loss is happening along a route.

    There are two ways to do this. One, in the terminal, use traceroute. The other is use /Applications/Utilities/Network Utility, and select the Traceroute tab.

    By the way, I thought the equivalent on Windows is tracert. Never heard of it known as pathping before.
