trace6 is a traceroute utility for IPv6. It can do TCP and ICMPv6 based trace, and we can also set the source address. Trace is a tool for troubleshooting and monitoring API proxies running on Apigee Edge. Trace lets you probe the details of each step through an API proxy flow. the route that IP packets will take between the computer running Dynatrace Network Analyzer and any other IP device.

-a insert a hop-by-hop header with router alert option. -D insert a destination extension header -E insert a destination extension header with an invalid option -F insert a one-shot fragmentation header -b instead of an ICMP6 Ping, use TooBig (you will not see the target) -B instead of an ICMP6 Ping, use PingReply (you will not see the target) -d resolves the IPv6 addresses to DNS. -t enables tunnel detection -u use UDP instead of TCP if a port is supplied -s src6 specifies the source IPv6 address
