I was looking for a tool to show the continuous loss of ping to several hosts, and I looked at mtr since it already has the screen I was thinking about. I saw you have this option that sounded promising:
-F FILENAME, --filename FILENAME Reads the list of hostnames from the specified file.
Unfortunately, I can't understand what
mtr does with this list of host names. It seems that it only picks up the first one on the list and reports on it
How is the "host name list" used by mtr?
