pppstats - print PPP statistics
pppstats [ -v ] [ -r ] [ -c ] [ -i <secs> ] [ <unit#> ]
pppstats prints PPP-related statistics.
The -v flag causes pppstats to display additional statistics, such as
the number of packets tossed (that is, which the VJ TCP header
decompression code rejected).
The -r flag causes pppstats to display the overall packet compression
rate. The rate value is between 0 and 1, with 0 meaning that the data
The -c flag is used to specify an alternate display mode that shows
packet compression statistics: the number of packets and bytes
uncompressed (that is, before compression or after decompression),
compressed, and incompressible (packets which did not shrink on
compression and were transmitted uncompressed), and the recent
compression rate. This rate reflects the recent performance of the
compression code rather than the overall rate achieved since
compression was enabled.
The -i flag is used to specify the interval between printouts. The
default is 5 seconds.
<unit#> specifies which interface to use for gathering statistics.
