SLSTAT(8) MidnightBSD System Manager’s Manual SLSTAT(8)

NAME

slstat — report serial line IP statistics

SYNOPSIS

slstat [−i interval] [−vr] [unit]

DESCRIPTION

The slstat utility reports certain kernel statistics kept about serial line internet protocol traffic.

The options are as follows:

−i

Repeat the display indefinitely every interval seconds. If no interval is specified, the default is 5 seconds.

−v

Verbose display of extra fields of information.

−r

Display all values in rate per second rather than amount per interval.

unit

Is number specifying the SLIP interface, or a SLIP interface name. The default unit is 0 for interface sl0.

By default, slstat displays the following information:

in

bytes received

out

bytes sent

pack

packets received or sent

comp

compressed packets received or sent

uncomp

uncompressed packets received or sent

unknwn

inbound packets of unknown type

toss

inbound packets tossed because of error

other

all other inbound or outbound ip packets

err

input or output errors

search

searches for connection state

miss

times we could not find a connection state

coll

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.

EXAMPLES

The command:

slstat -i 5

will print what the system is doing every five seconds.
