Sensing Interface Statistics

Via the IDM:s Monitoring->Sensing Interface Statistics you get a number

of interface-counters. Some of these counters are not obvious to me.

Where can I find some documentation ?

Examples :

Number Of Quad Objects

DLPI drop

Thanks

Re: Sensing Interface Statistics

Well here's a explaination for DLPI

Sniffing is listening (with software) to the raw network device for

packets that interest you. When your software sees a packet that fits

certain criteria, it logs it to a file. The most common criteria for an

interesting packet is one that contains words like "login" or

"password."

You will have to obtain or code a sniffer that is capable of working

with the appropriate type of network interface. Popular network

interfaces include NIT (Network Interface Tap), and DLPI (Data Link

Provider Interface), and BPF (Berkeley Packet Filter.)

DLPI supports Ethernet, X.25

LAPB, SDLC, ISDN LAPD, CSMA/CD, FDDI, token ring, token bus, and Bisync

as data-link protocols.
