PCP-NETSTAT(1)           General Commands Manual          PCP-NETSTAT(1)

NAME         top

       pcp-netstat - Report statistics for different network protocols
       and network interfaces.

SYNOPSIS         top

       pcp [pcp options] netstat [--statistics] [-p [TCP|IP|UDP|ICMP]]
       [-i] [-s samples] [-a archive] [-S start_time] [-T end_time]

DESCRIPTION         top

       The pcp-netstat command is used for viewing the different kinds
       of statistics related to the network protocols and the network
       interfaces. This tool is useful for checking the status of your
       network interfaces, network connections and for troubleshooting
       network issues.  This tool can also be used to analyze network
       statistics for all available protocols, including TCP, UDP, ICMP,
       and IP protocols.

       By default pcp-netstat reports live data for the local host. It
       has the capabilities to analyze the data on the archives as well.

       Environment variables with the prefix PCP_ are used to
       parameterize the file and directory names used by PCP.  On each
       installation, the file /etc/pcp.conf contains the local values
       for these variables.  The $PCP_CONF variable may be used to
       specify an alternative configuration file, as described in

       For environment variables affecting PCP tools, see
