Work with diagnostic tools

Traffic Management diagnostic tools are available for Performance properties to:

  • Provide a way to diagnose traffic changes for properties

  • Understand mapping decisions made by Traffic Management

  • Gain insight into the composition of your traffic

To access Traffic Management diagnostic tools.

  1. Log in to ​Control Center​ and go to > SUPPORT > Diagnostic tools.

  2. From the GTM Tools section, choose the tool you want to use from these options.

Data Center Diagnostics

Using performance properties, this tool displays the top five autonomous systems and the top five countries mapped to each data center at a point in time, as a percentage of total estimated traffic mapped to the given data center in the selected domain. After making your report selections, click Run Report to view results.

For detailed configuration information, see Data Center Diagnostics.

Get Domain Information (DIG)

This tool enables you to perform a DNS look-up of a GTM property from an edge server using these query tools.

  • Get Domain Information (GTMDIG)

  • Network Connectivity Test (GTMMTR)

For detailed configuration information, see Get Domain Information (DIG).

IP diagnostics

This tool enables you to find out how and why a particular name server is mapped for any of your performance properties, at any time.

For detailed configuration information, see IP Diagnostics .

Map Diff Diagnostics

This tool provides an analysis of the differences in name server-to-data center maps for two points in time, and reports the top differences between them for each data center, in terms of AS (autonomous systems) and country of origin. This information is useful if you notice a traffic shift and want to understand what shifted. After making your report selections, click Compare Maps to view results.

For detailed configuration information, see Map Diff Diagnostics .

Network Connectivity Test (MTR)

This tool enables you to run a network connectivity test from a GTM servermonitor to an origin server. You can select any server specified in a Traffic Target for testing. Use these query tools when diagnosing individual liveness test failures.

  • Get Domain Information (GTMDIG)

  • Network Connectivity Test (GTMMTR)

For detailed configuration information about (MTR), see Network Connectivity Test (MTR) .
