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.
