     slurm - yet another network load monitor


     slurm [-hHz] [-csl] [-d delay] -i interface


     slurm is a generic network load monitor which shows device statistics together with a nice
     ascii graph. Three different types of graphs are supported.


     -h      Print usage information and quit.

     -H      add hostname to title

     -c      start slurm with classic/combined graph

     -s      start slurm in split graph mode

     -l      start slurm in large split graph mode

     -z      virtually zero traffic counters instead of showing values stored in kernel

     -d delay
             delay between screen updates in milliseconds (1000 = once per second)

     -i interface
             select interface to monitor (required)


     slurm supports several different keys for interaction:

     c       switch to classic mode

     s       switch to split graph mode

     l       switch to large graph mode

     L       enable TX/RX led

     m       switch between classic, split and large view

     z       zero counters

     r       redraw screen

     q       quit slurm


     Several features of slurm are not supported on certain platforms, i.e.  Interface speed
     detection is only supported on *BSD. Please check the source code documentation to see if
     your bug is really a bug.  Please report bugs at
