NAME Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats - Collect linux net statistics.
SYNOPSIS use Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats; my $lxs = Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats->new; $lxs->init; sleep 1; my $stat = $lxs->get; Or my $lxs = Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats->new(initfile => $file); $lxs->init; my $stat = $lxs->get;
DESCRIPTION Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats gathers net statistics from the virtual /proc filesystem (procfs). For more information read the documentation of the front-end module Sys::Statistics::Linux.
NET STATISTICS Generated by /proc/net/dev. rxbyt - Number of bytes received per second. rxpcks - Number of packets received per second. rxerrs - Number of errors that happend while received packets per second. rxdrop - Number of packets that were dropped per second. rxfifo - Number of FIFO overruns that happend on received packets per second. rxframe - Number of carrier errors that happend on received packets per second. rxcompr - Number of compressed packets received per second. rxmulti - Number of multicast packets received per second. txbyt - Number of bytes transmitted per second. txpcks - Number of packets transmitted per second. txerrs - Number of errors that happend while transmitting packets per second. txdrop - Number of packets that were dropped per second. txfifo - Number of FIFO overruns that happend on transmitted packets per second. txcolls - Number of collisions that were detected per second. txcarr - Number of carrier errors that happend on transmitted packets per second. txcompr - Number of compressed packets transmitted per second. ttpcks - Number of total packets (received + transmitted) per second. ttbyt - Number of total bytes (received + transmitted) per second.
METHODS new() Call "new()" to create a new object. my $lxs = Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats->new; Maybe you want to store/load the initial statistics to/from a file: my $lxs = Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats->new(initfile => '/tmp/netstats.yml'); If you set "initfile" it's not necessary to call sleep before "get()". It's also possible to set the path to the proc filesystem. Sys::Statistics::Linux::NetStats->new( files => { # This is the default path => '/proc', netdev => 'net/dev', } ); init() Call "init()" to initialize the statistics. $lxs->init; get() Call "get()" to get the statistics. "get()" returns the statistics as a hash reference. my $stat = $lxs->get; raw() The same as get_raw() but it's not necessary to call init() first. get_raw() Call "get_raw()" to get the raw data - no deltas.
