       WMND - WindowMaker network device monitor


       wmnd { options }


       WMND  is  a  WindowMaker dock application that shows a graph of the network traffic of the
       past few minutes, current activity  and  current  and  overall  send  and  receive  rates.
       Additionally it can launch any program in response to mouse clicks.


       -i interface
              Select the interface to start with.

       -I interface
              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.

       -D driver
              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

       -s scroll
              scroll rate in tenths of seconds

       -S steps
              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

       -c color
              tx color

       -C color
              rx color

       -L color
              middle line color

       -d display
              Draw onto X11 display display

       -f config
              Read config instead of ~/.wmndrc

       -F     Don't parse ~/.wmndrc

       -h     Show summary of options.

       -v     Show version of WMND.

       -q     Be less verbose (display only errors).

       -Q     Show informational messages.

       -o float
              Smoothing factor (a float from 0 to 1).

       -a bytes
              Use a fixed scale for the bytes modes specified in bytes per  second.   By  default
              uses an automatic scale.

       -n name
              Change the WMND class/title name (defaults to "wmnd").


   Active Interface
       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.

   Device Name
       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.

   Graphic Mode
       Left-click on the main graphic area to cycle the graphic mode.

   Max Meter
       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.

   Byte/Packet Mode
       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.

   User Script
       Click on the bottom rate meter can invoke  the  user  command  defined  in  resource  file

   Dragging WMND
       Be  sure to drag WMND on it's outer edges, it's 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/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.

              Reads data from the linux proc(5) virtual filesystem.

              Uses the MIB to gather device statistics under FreeBSD (offline devices handling is
              buggy, support needed!)

              Read statistics through the NetBSD ioctl call.

              Gather all devices of class net from the kstat library.

              Reads metrics from the IRIX Performance Co-Pilot daemon.  Interface format:


              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 there's 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.

              This  is  the "last resort" driver, it shows a null device useful only to make WMND
              don't 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/).


              Clean WMND shutdown.


       Report bugs and suggestion to the current WMND maintainer:  wave++  <>.
       More  information  (including  usage instructions) can be found into the README file found
       into the distribution. These information should be integrated here too.
