Useful sites for tracking down problems
« on: Jun 11, 2010, 19:09:10 »
Just thought I'd put up this list of sites I've found quite interesting and helpful when tracking down problems:

Internet Traffic Report - http://internettrafficreport.com/
Gives an aggregate index for various regions of the Internet.

Keynote InternetPulse http://internetpulse.net/
Provides latency figures for the major US backbones.

Akamai Real time web monitor http://www.akamai.com/html/technology/dv1_attacks_dynamic.html

A simple but useful tool (if you have no friends, ahem):

Good one esh.

Another tool I have installed is the Netcraft Toolbar (http://toolbar.netcraft.com)

This gives you a rough idea how long the site has been up (or at least how long ago they discovered it), whether the site has been reported as a phishing site (you can report sites from the toolbar) and also who owns the IP address associated with the site (usually the web host or organisation).

Clicking site report will take you to a page showing other info collated about the site such as the webserver O/S and webserver software (though if its behind a load balancer such as a Citrix NetScaler or F5 Big IP this will be inaccurate)
