In all seriousness, one has the basics like traceroute, ping,
route servers, looking glasses, et cetera. However, those tools
only give a view from a certain point or along a path... they
provide a limited cross-section of a complex N-dimensional beast.
Bill was right: Sean Donelan's posts are very handy. And I was
only halfway being a smart-aleck... if one deduces that there
just _has_ to be something anomalous, posting to NANOG is an
amusingly low-tech "distributed layer-9" diagnostic.
Note that I'm assuming you refer to internetwork diagnostics. If
you seek intranetwork diagnostics, one has SNMP and other tools.
