SLSTAT(8)                 BSD System Manager's Manual                SLSTAT(8)

     slstat -- report serial line IP statistics

     slstat [-i interval] [-vr] [unit]

     The slstat utility reports certain kernel statistics kept about serial
     line internet protocol traffic.

     The options are as follows:

     -i      Repeat the display indefinitely every interval seconds.  If no
             interval is specified, the default is 5 seconds.

     -v      Verbose display of extra fields of information.

     -r      Display all values in rate per second rather than amount per

     unit    Is number specifying the SLIP interface, or a SLIP interface
             name.  The default unit is 0 for interface sl0.

     By default, slstat displays the following information:

     in      bytes received

     out     bytes sent

     pack    packets received or sent

     comp    compressed packets received or sent

     uncomp  uncompressed packets received or sent

     unknwn  inbound packets of unknown type

     toss    inbound packets tossed because of error

     other   all other inbound or outbound ip packets

     err     input or output errors

     search  searches for connection state

     miss    times we could not find a connection state

     coll    collisions with end of clists.  If you get many collisions (more
             than one or two a day) you probably do not have enough clists and
             you should increase nclist in param.c.

     The command:
           slstat -i 5
     will print what the system is doing every five seconds.
