    Are you asking what Ping and trace does?  Ping will see if a device is active on your network while trace route will show you the path between your device and the target device.  Open ports is just what it says, which ports are actively open on whatever you're pointing to. Having a port open is not necessarily a bad thing (though it could be an indicator of a virus or hack) and can be useful when troubleshooting.
