PPPSTATS(8)              BSD System Manager's Manual               PPPSTATS(8)

NAME

     pppstats - report statistics for the specified PPP interface

SYNOPSIS

     pppstats [-v] [-r] [-z] [-a] [-d] [-c count] [-w secs] [interface]

DESCRIPTION

     The pppstats utility reports PPP-related statistics at regular intervals
     for the specified PPP interface. If the interface is unspecified, it will
     default to ppp0. The display is split horizontally into input and output
     sections containing columns of statistics describing the properties and
     volume of packets received and transmitted by the interface.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Display absolute values rather than deltas. If this option is
             specified with the -c and/or -w options, the second and subse-
             quent reports (as well as the first) will show statistics for the
             time since the link was initiated.

     -c count
             Repeat the display count times. The first display is for the time
             since the link was initiated (that is, since the corresponding
             pppd(8) was started), and each subsequent report is for the time
             period since the last display (unless the -a option is speci-
             fied). If this option is not specified, the default repeat count
             is 1 if the -w option is not specified, otherwise infinity.

     -d      Display values in terms of data rate (KB/s) rather than in bytes.

     -r      Display additional statistics summarizing the compression ratio
             achieved by the packet compression algorithm in use.

     -v      Display additional statistics demonstrating the efficiency of VJ
             header compression and provide more explicit information on the
             operation of the algorithm.

     -w wait
             Pause wait seconds between each display.

     -z      Instead of the standard display, show statistics indicating the
             performance of the packet compression algorithm in use.

     The following fields are printed on the input side when the -z option is
     not used:

     IN      The total number of bytes received by this interface.

     PACK    The total number of packets received by this interface.

     VJCOMP  The number of compressed TCP packets received by this interface.

     VJUNC   The number of uncompressed TCP packets received by this inter-
             face. Not reported when the -r option is specified.

     VJERR   The number of corrupted or bogus TCP packets received by this in-
             terface. Not reported when the -r option is specified.

     VJTOSS  The number of VJ header-compressed TCP packets dropped on recep-
             tion by this interface because of preceding errors. Only reported
             when the -v option is specified.

     NON-VJ  The total number of non-VJ packets received by this interface.
             Only reported when the -v option is specified.
     RATIO   The compression ratio achieved for received packets by the packet
             compression scheme in use, defined as the uncompressed size di-
             vided by the compressed size. Only reported when the -r option is
             specified.

     UBYTE   The total number of bytes received, after decompression of
             compressed packets. Only reported when the -r option is speci-
             fied.

     The following fields are printed on the output side:

     OUT     The total number of bytes transmitted from this interface.

     PACK    The total number of packets transmitted from this interface.

     VJCOMP  The number of TCP packets transmitted from this interface with
             VJ-compressed TCP headers.

     VJUNC   The number of TCP packets transmitted from this interface with
             VJ-uncompressed TCP headers. Not reported when the -r option is
             specified.

     NON-VJ  The total number of non-VJ packets transmitted from this inter-
             face. Not reported when the -r option is specified.

     VJSRCH  The number of searches for the cached header entry for a VJ
             header compressed TCP packet. Only reported when the -v option is
             specified.

     VJMISS  The number of failed searches for the cached header entry for a
             VJ header compressed TCP packet. Only reported when the -v option
             is specified.

     RATIO   The compression ratio achieved for transmitted packets by the
             packet compression scheme in use, defined as the size before
             compression divided by the compressed size. Only reported when
             the -r option is specified.

     UBYTE   The total number of bytes to be transmitted, before packet
             compression is applied. Only reported when the -r option is
             specified.

     When the -z option is specified, instead displays the following fields,
     relating to the packet compression algorithm currently in use. If packet
     compression is not in use, these fields will all display zeroes. The
     fields displayed on the input side are:

     COMPRESSED BYTE
             The number of bytes of compressed packets received.

     COMPRESSED PACK
             The number of compressed packets received.

     INCOMPRESSIBLE BYTE
             The number of bytes of incompressible packets (that is, those
             which were transmitted in uncompressed form) received.

     INCOMPRESSIBLE PACK
             The number of incompressible packets received.

     COMP RATIO
             The recent compression ratio for incoming packets, defined as the
             uncompressed size divided by the compressed size (including both
             compressible and incompressible packets).

     The fields displayed on the output side are:

     COMPRESSED BYTE
             The number of bytes of compressed packets transmitted.

     COMPRESSED PACK
             The number of compressed packets transmitted.

     INCOMPRESSIBLE BYTE
             The number of bytes of incompressible packets transmitted (that
             is, those which were transmitted in uncompressed form).

     INCOMPRESSIBLE PACK
             The number of incompressible packets transmitted.

     COMP RATIO
             The recent compression ratio for outgoing packets.
