NAME
     trafstatd -- ip traffic statistics	daemon.

SYNOPSIS
     trafstatd [-V] [-L	logfile]

DESCRIPTION
     TrafStatD daemon allow remote requests of the current traffic statistic,
     collected via trafd (see trafd(8)).

     Client program for	trafstatd is named trafstat (see trafstat(1)).	The
     telnet program (see telnet(1)) can	use as an alternative client.

   Usage
     Trafstatd is normally invoked by the internet server (see inetd(8)) for
     requests to connect to the	selected port (for example, 150) as indicated
     by	the /etc/services file (see services(5)).  If you run trafstatd	manu-
     ally, it display error message.  Run trafstatd with -V option for display
     version number.

   Installation
     After compilation and installation	BPFT programs do following steps:

     1.	  Add line to /etc/services for	use some (not used by other applica-
	  tion)	tcp port for incoming connections to trafstatd,	for example:

	  trafstat 150/tcp # network traffic statistic

     2.	  Add line to /etc/inetd.conf for invoke trafstatd from	inetd for in-
	  coming connections to	trafstat tcp port, for example:

	  trafstat stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/sbin/trafstatd trafstatd

     3.	  Force	inetd to re-read config	file:

	  killall -HUP inetd

	  (or kill -1 with the PID number of the inetd)

   Retrieve current traffic statistic.
     Run the trafstat program (see trafstat(1))	for connect to trafstat	port
     or	run the	"telnet	host port" (see	telnet(1)) and put the string of com-
     mand line parameters to remote trafstat.
