PathPing

Definition - What does PathPing mean?

PathPing is a Windows utility allowing the user to reveal the path between two hosts. Unlike other similar commands, with PathPing, each node is pinged by the command. Pathping resembles some other commands such as one called tracert that displays the trajectory of data packets and measures delivery delays through an IP network.

Techopedia explains PathPing

Like other types of similar commands, PathPing is subject to a somewhat bewildering range of options and declarative operators. These include prefixes for conditions such as maximum hops, how many milliseconds to wait between pings, number of queries per hop, timeout ranges, and connectivity tests, as well as the use of either IPv4 or IPv6 address protocols.
