I need something like pppload used to be under Linux, before it
ceased being maintained, or like GkrellM or procmeter are today.
In other words, an "xload" workalike for the packets passing through
my external modem's serial port .. or my DSL line, if the idiots at
US Waste ever get the lead out of their worthless butts and establish
an exchange close enough to my residence to provision it ...
OpenBSD 2.5's ppp works just fine. I reworked my old Linux
chatscripts, and they work like a charm. But my _abominable_ local
RBOC has lines which can be as flaky as breakfast cereal. Hence, I
need to _monitor_ traffic flow over the line. That way, I'll know
when to tear down the link and rebuild it.
Can't locate anything in the 'packages' directory on the canonical
site, or my CDROM. The "ports" collection comes up empty.
Thanks in advance,
