What is this tool?

VectorTrace is unique in that it allows for traceroutes to be performed simultaneously from multiple locations and that information displayed in context of each other. For example, on initial launch VectorTrace will trace from three discrete locations and display the route taken to the requested destination.

How do the results help me?

This will allow the user to understand critical common points in the path. This will help identify the most critical points with poor performance so that you can remedy that situation by working with the administrators of that point or giving you the information to choose a better location for the final destination. As the product matures we will offer options to present the data on a map and even automate and alert on the quality of the paths taken.
