NAME

lnstat - unified linux network statistics  

SYNOPSIS

lnstat [options]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the lnstat command.

lnstat is a generalized and more feature-complete replacement for the old rtstat program. In addition to routing cache statistics, it supports any kind of statistics the linux kernel exports via a file in /proc/net/stat/.  

OPTIONS

These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). lnstat supports the following options.
-h, --help
Show summary of options.
-V, --version
Show version of program.
-c, --count <count>
Print <count> number of intervals.
-d, --dump
Dump list of available files/keys.
-f, --file <file>
Statistics file to use.
-i, --interval <intv>
Set interval to 'intv' seconds.
-k, --keys k,k,k,...
Display only keys specified.
-s, --subject [0-2]
Specify display of subject/header. '0' means no header at all, '1' prints a header only at start of the program and '2' prints a header every 20 lines.
-w, --width n,n,n,...
Width for each field.
 

USAGE EXAMPLES

# lnstat -d

# lnstat -k arp_cache:entries,rt_cache:in_hit,arp_cache:destroys

# lnstat -i 10

# lnstat -f ip_conntrack

# lnstat -s 0
