       ethstatus - Console-based ethernet statistics monitor


       ethstatus  [ -h ] [ -i interface ] [ -v videomode ] [ -S bps[k|m|g] ] [
       -s speed ] (backward compatibility)


       ethstatus  is  a  console-based  monitoring  utility   for   displaying
       statistical data of the ethernet interface on a quantity basis.


       The following options can be provided:

       -i     Specify the ethernet interface which shall be monitored. Default
              is ’eth0’.

       -v     Set the video mode used by curses. Possible  choices  are  ’vga’
              (the  default) and ’mono’ (useful for black-and-white monitors).

       -S     Set the maximum network speed  in  bits  per  second.  ethstatus
              knows  about  the  kilo (k), mega (m) and giga (g) modifiers. So
              you can specify the speed as e.g. 64k or 100m or 1g.

       -s     Set the maximum network speed. Possible  values  are  ’10’  (=10
              Mbps),  ´100’  (=100  Mbps), ’64’ (=64 kbps), ’128’ (=128 kbps),
              256 (=256 kbps), ´768’ (=768 kbps) or ’1540’ (=1540 kbps).  This
              option  is provided for backward compatibility to prior versions
              of ethstatus. Please use the -S parameter instead.

              The  original  program  was  written   by   Gabriel   Montenegro
              <>.  Bug  fixes, code cleanup,
              different improvements and this manual  page  were  provided  by
              Christoph   Haas   <>   for   the  Debian
              GNU/Linux system.
