Description

Right now we display the reverse traceroute on the map and the arrows from "backwards" from destination to source. This is confusing yet technically "correct" because we only show a sign traceroute on the map. What should we do?

History

#1 Updated by Maxim Grigoriev over 8 years ago

something like O--------------------- Not available ------------------------------------O
where O is the src/dst hubs and dashed line is just gray line. Anything informative to let user
know that data is not there.

#2 Updated by David Eads over 8 years ago

I don't think I can do a dashed or dotted line, and know for sure text won't work. But making the line a light, neutral gray should be no problem.

#3 Updated by Maxim Grigoriev over 8 years ago

yes, lighter color or even semi-transparent/shadowed should work.

Max and I discussed this a week or so ago. Closing -- this is rare, not a big deal, and hard to implement.
