This little one-liner converts the output of traceroute to Smokeping Target
output. This way you can build your smokeping config faster.

I'm developing an open source monitoring app called Leaf Node Monitoring, for windows, linux & android. Go check it out!

Consider sponsoring me on Github. It means the world to me if you show your appreciation and you'll help pay the server costs.

You can also sponsor me by getting a Digital Ocean VPS. With this referral link you'll get $100 credit for 60 days.

There is an [IPv6 version of this article][2].

You can see smokeping in action [here at serverius][3]. More info about
[Smokeping here on the website][4].

I have most hops from my ISP in my smokeping config to see where the latency
might be. This traceroute one liner helps to get the right config.

    traceroute -w 3 example.org | grep -v "*" | sed -e 's/(//g' -e 's/)//g' | awk '{ gsub(/\./,"_",$2); print "++ "$2"\nmenu = "$3"\ntitle = "$2" - "$3"\nhost = "$3"\n"}'

The "*" are grepped out, the `()` are removed from the IP address and we also
replace . in the hostname so that Smokeping doesn't barf on that.

This will give you something like this (for [tweakers.net][5]:
    ++ 0_so-1-2-0_xr1_tc2_xs4all_net
    menu =
    title = 0_so-1-2-0_xr1_tc2_xs4all_net -
    host =
    ++ amsix_true_nl
    menu =
    title = amsix_true_nl -
    host =
    ++ ams7_edge01_tengig-6-1-11_true_nl
    menu =
    title = ams7_edge01_tengig-6-1-11_true_nl -
    host =
    ++ tweakers_net
    menu =
    title = tweakers_net -
    host =

Or for [reddit.com][6]:
    ++ 0_so-1-2-0_xr1_tc2_xs4all_net
    menu =
    title = 0_so-1-2-0_xr1_tc2_xs4all_net -
    host =
    ++ eth7-1_edge1_ams5_nl_atrato_net
    menu =
    title = eth7-1_edge1_ams5_nl_atrato_net -
    host =
    ++ eth1-6_edge2_ams5_nl_as5580_net
    menu =
    title = eth1-6_edge2_ams5_nl_as5580_net -
    host =
    ++ 78_152_38_234
    menu =
    title = 78_152_38_234 -
    host =
    ++ a23-62-98-210_deploy_static_akamaitechnologies_com
    menu =
    title = a23-62-98-210_deploy_static_akamaitechnologies_com -
    host =

This can be pasted right in to Smokeping's config.

I use the following version of Traceroute:

    $ traceroute -V
    Modern traceroute for Linux, version 2.0.19, Sep 29 2013
