I am looking for a free or l;ess than $50 tool that does the equivalent of a tracert command in Windows.  It must:
1. allow for continuous tracerts to be done to a single IP any number of minutes apart (e.g., every 1 min).  Being able to do multiple separate IPs would be nice as well.
2. Show some decent stats (max, avg, min for each hop; max, avg, min for round trip.
3. Visual graphs of hops is preferred -- Visual Route 2009 is nice but too expensive

Also, in Windows, what the heck do those first three columns of ms mean?  I am guessing max, avg, and min but it would be nice to know and the msft docs don't say.

Sorry, i specifically mentioned I was not interested in Visual Route -- too expensive.  The freeware version does not suit my needs.

I likd uetian1707's solution the most for a variety of reasons.  First, the src is there which means I can modify the source and, for example, dump out the last set of tracert values and later graph them myself. I gave this 75 of the 125 pts.

Katteneh -- I gave you 50 of the 125 points -- your link was ip-tracking which was more along the line of whois -- not quite at all like tracert -- but it did lead me the the "Free IP Tools 4.2 from www.tamos.com which I found s bit useful, but not as useful as the sourceforge one.  

Independently, I found something better than both of the above, graphically (and with regard to other features) but no src to tweak.  This is called ccping 1.1 and can be found on www.colasoft.com -- the documentation has a bit of broken English.  This appears to have been developed in China and they did a pretty darn god job.  It's not a tracert -- but you can specify multiple domans -- so if you take your cmd.exe tracert.exe output of  ip addresses, you can graphically see how each one is doing, w/r to pings, at any particular time.  Not at all like the tracert tool which gave you the list of IP addresses in the first place, but still useful.

Thanks
