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 decom-
pression 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 uncom-
pressed (that is, before compression or after decompression), com-
pressed, and incompressible (packets which did not shrink on compres-
sion 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
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.
