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.

EXPORTS ^

No exports.
