wmppp - Graphically monitor the average PPP load


wmppp [-display <display name>] [-t] [-u <update rate>] [-i <device>] [-h] [-v]

DESCRIPTION displays a dynamic representation of the load on the PPP line on a 64x64 miniwindow. It also starts and stops the connection and displays the time enlapsed since the it came up. The traffic on the interface is also monitored.


-display <display name>
name of display to use
sets the on-line timer to display MM:SS instead of the default HH:MM.
-u <update rate>
sets the frequency, in seconds, for updates to the display. Valid range is 1-10, default value is 5.
-i <device>
choose the net device (ppp1, ippp0, etc.) to monitor. (Note that this feature is EXPERIMENTAL and should be used with caution. Bug reports are welcomed.)
displays a command line summary
displays the version number.


The configuration file (see below) may contain any of the following key-value pairs. The format is key: value.
The program that starts the connection
The program that stops the connection
This program reports the speed of the connection. This program should output <speed>, that is, a number is expected and not the whole
This program is run if the line goes down, and the stop program hasn't been run. (Redial program)
The modification time of this file is used to calculate the amount of time the connection has been up. Something like touch <stampfile> should be run for this to work.


this is the stamp file use to determine the ammount of time enlapsed since the connection came up. This file should be managed by the ip-up and ip-down scripts. On Debian systems, /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/00wmppp creates the file, and /etc/ppp/ip-down.d/00wmppp removes it.
System wide defaults
User defined settings
System wide fixed options, this overrides the user settings
