RPC.RSTATD(8)             BSD System Manager's Manual            RPC.RSTATD(8)

NAME
     rpc.rstatd -- kernel statistics server

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/sbin/rpc.rstatd [INTERFACE]...

DESCRIPTION
     rpc.rstatd is a RPC daemon which collects performance statistics from
     kernel on serving machine.  This implementation for the Linux Operating
     System also returns the number of users logged in on the remote machine
     if the information is available.

     It also allows to specify which network interfaces to include in the
     packet count. If no interface names are specified packets from all inter-
     faces besides the loopback interface are added up.

     The statistics are queried using rup(1) , perfmeter(1) , etc.  The
     rpc.rstatd daemon is normally invoked by inetd(8).

     rpc.rstatd uses an RPC protocol defined in /usr/include/rpcsvc/rstat.x.
