NAME

       mheardd - collect information about packet activity

SYNOPSIS

       mheardd [-f] [-l] [-n number] [-v]

DESCRIPTION

       Mheardd  is a daemon that collects the statistics about the activity on
       all the AX.25 channels that  are  configured.  The  list  generated  is
       available  for  viewing  by  the  mheard(1)  program.  The  information
       collected is a  superset  of  the  information  normally  collected  by
       similar  mheard programs and this is reflected in the options available
       for the viewing program. Logging to the system log file may be  enabled
       which  will  enable  monitoring of pathalogical conditions, for example
       invalid frame types and invalid/unknown protocol IDs.

OPTIONS

       -f        Deletes the existing mheard logging file at program  startup,
                 this is not the default.

       -l        Enables logging to the system log file. The default is off.

       -n number Sets  the  number  of  entries in the activity list file, the
                 default is 40. The  minimum  value  allowed  is  10  and  the
                 maximum is 100.

       -v        Display the version.
