So we all know that its much more difficult to diagnose using that tool 
than just reading its output more often than not.

Whats usually more important is correlation, over time and at any 
specific time.

While tools such as mtr provide over time viewpoints, what can be run, 
user style, that will show packet loss/jitter over successive hops or in 
some sort of diagnosable pattern, as snapshots of data, when running the 
tool for some period of time where the long term averages/cumulative 
numbers will render such events mere statistical noise?
