By default, slstat displays the following information:

uncompressed packets received or sent
inbound packets of unknown type
inbound packets tossed because of error
all other inbound or outbound ip packets
input or output errors
searches for connection state
times we could not find a connection state
collisions with end of clists. If you get many collisions (more than one or two a day) you probably do not have enough clists and you should increase nclist in param.c.
