In that link and others like it in the ATA sub-forum, Elad is asking for help with the intermittent slow page-loading times.

As you see, he's asking for a traceroute when pages load slowly.

Most of you probably know how to do this already. If you do, this is not for you.

For the rest of DU, here's how:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/open-a-command-prompt-window

Open the Command Prompt window by clicking the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Command Prompt.


Then, type this exactly after the C:\ : tracert 216.158.28.196

ON EDIT: type tracert www.democraticunderground.com instead, my bad.

You then tap the Enter key, and the black window fills up slowly with several lines of information. Wait a minute or so for it to stop completely.

You then right click select all in that black window, and then do CTRL-C to copy the output to your clipboard. Open up a PM to Elad, and do CTRL-P to paste it into the PM.

Those directions should work for Windows XP, Vista and 7.

For Windows 8, follow these directions.

For Mac OSX, follow these directions.

For Linux (for completeness sake), here you go.

Hope this info helps a few and DU, also.
