       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
       is incompressible.

       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.
