NAME
       wmnet - Network Statistics Monitor for WindowMaker

SYNOPSIS
       wmnet [ -v ] [ -i <name>	] [ -u <delay> ] [ -h ]

DESCRIPTION
       wmnet is	a WindowMaker Dock.app that graphically	displays network traf-
       fic. The	data throughput	is sampled once	a second and  displayed	 on  a
       scrolling graph.

       The application window is divided into three sections.

       Graph  Most  of	the window consists of the graph. This graph shows the
	      profile of the network traffic. Every second  the	 contents  are
	      scrolled	to  the	left as	a new data point is added to the right
	      hand side. The graph itself is divided into  two	sections.  The
	      upper half displays the incoming traffic,	the lower half handles
	      the outgoing traffic. Both portions are displayed	 at  the  same
	      scale.  The  scale  is  set to the maximum data rate that's dis-
	      played in	the window. This scale is also displayed as  a	number
	      and is shown in the lower	left corner of the graph.

       Label  The  upper  left	section	displays the currently selected	inter-
	      face. To switch to a different interface,	click anywhere in  the
	      label.

       Status The  upper  right	section	contains three LEDs. The leftmost LED,
	      when "lit", indicates the	current	interface is up.   The	middle
	      LED  indicates  the current interface is running.	 The rightmost
	      LED is red and indicates the current interface is	in promiscuous
	      mode.

       One final note: Even though this	is intended to be a WindowMaker	appli-
       cation, it still	should work under other	window managers.

OPTIONS
       wmnet supports several command line options:

       -v     Displays the current version and then exits.

       -i <name>
	      Specifies	the network interface that should be displayed.

       -u <delay>
	      Specifies	the delay between samples. The delay is	given in  sec-
	      onds and defaults	to 1 second between samples.

       -h     Print out	help text.

HISTORY
       This program started as a port of WMiFS.	The original version was writ-
       ten for Linux and had  Linux-specific  code  scattered  throughout  the
       source.

       Although	this version is	BSD-specific, all the statistic	gathering rou-
       tines are in a separate module. All information is obtained through the
       module's	 interface.  It's now easier to	port WMNet to Linux than it is
       to port WMiFS to	BSD!
