|Select the interface to start with.|
|Interface/s to monitor. Defaults to all but lo and irda. Under linux (using the linux_proc driver) you can specify multiple interfaces separated by commas to force offline ones and combine them into a single instance.|
|Specify a driver to use. Defaults to auto-probe.|
|-l||Start using long device names.|
|-m||Start with maximal values hidden.|
|-t||Start without displaying connection time of ppp links.|
|-M||Use the maximal values of the entire history.|
|-w mode||Select display mode to start with. Use wmnd -h for a list of available display modes. Right clicks on the graph cycle through all available modes.|
|-r rate||refresh rate in microseconds|
|scroll rate in tenths of seconds|
|Number of scroll steps to wait before updating the speed rate indicator.|
|-b||Scale the values of the maximum and current rate by factors of base 2 instead of the default 10-based scaling. (1K equals 1024 in binary mode, but 1000 in decimal mode.)|
|middle line color|
|Draw onto X11 display display|
|Read config instead of ~/.wmndrc|
|-F||Dont parse ~/.wmndrc|
|-h||Show summary of options.|
|-v||Show version of WMND.|
|-q||Be less verbose (display only errors).|
|-Q||Show informational messages.|
|Smoothing factor (a float from 0 to 1).|
|Use a fixed scale for the bytes modes specified in bytes per second. By default uses an automatic scale.|
Change the WMND class/title name (defaults to "wmnd").
You can cycle in realtime through all available active interfaces by simply left-clicking on the interface name gadget on the upperleft corner of WMND or use the mouse wheel.
The lo interface is an exception, lo only works when invoked from the commandline (wmnd -I lo), lo was mainly built in for testing purposes.
By default, WMND show device name in short term of four characters, for example, the ippp0 will be displayed as ipp0. You can toggle the device name between short and long by right-click on it.
Left-click on the main graphic area to cycle the graphic mode.
Left-click to toggle the history max or screen max, default is screen max when WMND is startup. Right-click to hide or show. Middle-click to zoom the statistics in a separated trend window. You can cycle the active interface and middle-click again to monitor multiple interfaces concurrently.
Left-click on the letter gadgeted on the right-top corner can switch between the Byte or Packet counter mode. "B" for byte, "p" for packet. The current mode affects the external trend window too.
Click on the bottom rate meter can invoke the user command defined in resource file .wmndrc.
Be sure to drag WMND on its outer edges, its a bit picky due to the large gfx pixmap it keeps. You can also use a keyboard and mouse shortcut (perhaps ALT+left-click) in your window manager to drag it around.
solaris_fpppd Solaris/Linux ppp streams driver. Gathers device data from /dev/ppp. Uses code from the Solaris/Linux pppd server and it should work wherever Solaris/Linux pppd works. linux_proc Reads data from the linux proc(5) virtual filesystem. freebsd_sysctl Uses the MIB to gather device statistics under FreeBSD (offline devices handling is buggy, support needed!) netbsd_ioctl Read statistics through the NetBSD ioctl call. solaris_kstat Gather all devices of class net from the kstat library. irix_pcp Reads metrics from the IRIX Performance Co-Pilot daemon. Interface format:
generic_snmp Query an IF-MIB capable snmp server for gathering interface statistics. By default generic_snmp connects to localhost and uses the public community. You can change the community/host/interface to monitor by using the -I flag:
You must specify an interface number, not an interface name. If the interface number is 0, or theres no interface specification, WMND will display all available interfaces. By default the community name is "public". Beware that by specifying an snmp v1 community name on a command line can be dangerous on an multiuser platform. Please read the README file on the distribution for more details.
testing_dummy This is the "last resort" driver, it shows a null device useful only to make WMND dont exit when all other drivers failed. Can be enhanced to display something at compile time.
~/.wmndrc User configuration.
The format of this file is described in the example file "wmndrc" coming with the distribution (see /usr/share/doc/wmnd/).
SIGTERM SIGINT Clean WMND shutdown.
