wmppp - Graphically monitor the average PPP load
wmppp [-display <display name>] [-t] [-u <update rate>] [-i <device>] [-h] [-v]
wmppp.app displays a dynamic representation of the load on the PPP line on a 64x64 miniwindow. It also starts and stops the connection and displays the time enlapsed since the it came up. The traffic on the interface is also monitored.
-display <display name> name of display to use -t sets the on-line timer to display MM:SS instead of the default HH:MM. -u <update rate> sets the frequency, in seconds, for updates to the display. Valid range is 1-10, default value is 5. -i <device> choose the net device (ppp1, ippp0, etc.) to monitor. (Note that this feature is EXPERIMENTAL and should be used with caution. Bug reports are welcomed.) -h displays a command line summary -v displays the version number.
The configuration file (see below) may contain any of the following key-value pairs. The format is key: value. start The program that starts the connection stop The program that stops the connection speed This program reports the speed of the connection. This program should output <speed>, that is, a number is expected and not the whole ifdown This program is run if the line goes down, and the stop program hasn't been run. (Redial program) stampfile The modification time of this file is used to calculate the amount of time the connection has been up. Something like touch <stampfile> should be run for this to work.
/var/run/wmppp.ppp0 this is the stamp file use to determine the ammount of time enlapsed since the connection came up. This file should be managed by the ip-up and ip-down scripts. On Debian systems, /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/00wmppp creates the file, and /etc/ppp/ip- down.d/00wmppp removes it. /etc/wmppprc System wide defaults $HOME/.wmppprc User defined settings /etc/wmppprc.fixed System wide fixed options, this overrides the user settings
