DESCRIPTION

       The  purpose  of vnstati is to provide image output support for statistics collected using
       vnstat(1).  The image file format is limited to png.  All  basic  outputs  of  vnStat  are
       supported  excluding live traffic features. The image can be outputted either to a file or
       to standard output.

OPTIONS

       -c, --cache time
              Update output file only if at least time minutes have  passed  since  the  previous
              file update. This option is ignored if stdout is used as output.

       --config file
              Use file as config file instead of using normal config file search function.

       -d, --days
              Output traffic for days.

       --dbdir directory
              Use directory as database directory instead of using the directory specified in the
              configuration file or the hardcoded default if no configuration file is available.

       -h, --hours
              Output traffic for the last 24 hours.

       -hs, --hsummary
              Output traffic summary including hourly data using a horizontal layout.

       -i, --iface interface
              Use interface instead of default or configured interface.

       --locale locale
              Use locale instead of using the locale setting specified in the configuration  file
              or the system default if no configuration file is available.

       -m, --months
              Output traffic for months.

       -ne, --noedge
              Remove darker edges from around the image.

       -nh, --noheader
              Remove  header  containing  title and update time. Time of the previous update will
              still be visible in the lower right corner using a less visible color.

       -o, --output file
              Write png image to file and exit. Output can be directed to stdout by giving "-" as
              filename.

       -ru, --rateunit
              Swap  the  configured  rate  unit. If rate has been configured to be shown in bytes
              then rate will be shown in bits if this option is present. In the same way, if rate
              has  been configured to be shown in bits then rate will be shown in bytes when this
              option is present. Alternatively 0 or 1 can be given as parameter for  this  option
              in  order  to select between bytes (0) and bits (1) regardless of the configuration
              file setting.

       --style number
              Modify the content and style of outputs. Setting number  to  3  will  show  average
              traffic  rate  in  all  outputs  where it is supported.  Other values will show bar
              graphics instead.

       -s, --summary
              Output traffic summary.

       -t, --top10
              Output all time top10 traffic days.

       --transparent
              Toggle background color transparency depending of the TransparentBg setting in  the
              configuration  file. Alternatively 0 or 1 can be given as parameter for this option
              in order to either disable  (0)  or  enable  (1)  transparency  regardless  of  the
              configuration file setting.

       -v, --version
              Show current version.

       -vs, --vsummary
              Output traffic summary including hourly data using a vertical layout.

       -?, --help
              Show a command summary.

FILES

       /var/lib/vnstat/
              Default database directory. Files are named according to the monitored interfaces.

       /etc/vnstat.conf
              Config file that will be used unless $HOME/.vnstatrc exists. See vnstat.conf(5) for
              more information.

EXAMPLES

       vnstati -s -i eth0 -o /tmp/vnstat.png
              Output traffic summary for interface eth0 to file /tmp/vnstat.png.

       vnstati -vs -i eth0+eth1+eth2 -o /tmp/vnstat.png
              Output traffic summary with hourly data under the normal summary  for  a  merge  of
              interfaces eth0, eth1 and eth2 to file /tmp/vnstat.png.

       vnstati -h -c 15 -o /tmp/vnstat_h.png
              Output hourly traffic statistics for default interface to file /tmp/vnstat_h.png if
              the file has not been updated within the last 15 minutes.

       vnstati -d -ne -nh -o -
              Output daily traffic statistics without displaying the header section and edges for
              default interface to standard output (stdout).

       vnstati -m --config /home/me/vnstat.cfg -i -o -
              Output  monthly traffic statistics for default interface specified in configuration
              file /home/me/vnstat.cfg to standard output (stdout).
