The only exception is the general interface statistics, which is still restricted to only one instance at a time.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Because of this relaxation, each instance now generates log files with unique names for instances, depending on either their instance or the interface they're listening on. If the \i Logging\i0  option is turned on (see the {\field{\*\fldinst   HYPERLINK  \\l ID_CONFIG}{\fldrslt Configuration}} chapter), IPTraf will prompt you for a log file name while presenting a default.

The PgUp and PgDn keys display the previous and next screenfuls of entries respectively.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The IP traffic monitor computes the data flow rate of the currently highlighted TCP flow and displays it on the lower-right corner of the screen.

In other words, it does not know which endpoints are the client and server. This is necessary because it can operate in promiscuous mode, and as such cannot determine the socket statuses for other machines on the LAN. However, a little knowledge of the well-known TCP port numbers can give a good idea about which address is that of the server.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The system therefore displays two entries for each connection, one for each direction of the TCP connection.

This is because the traffic monitor cannot determine if a connection was already half-closed when it started. These entries will eventually time out. (To minimize these entries, an entry is not added by the monitor until a packet with data or a SYN packet is received.)\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Direction entries also become available for reuse if an ICMP Destination Unreachable message is received for the connection.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The lower part of the screen contains a summary line showing the IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, and non-IP byte counts since the start of the monitor.

The nature of the address will be determined by the wildcard mask.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  You'll notice two sets of fields, marked \fs18\f3 Source\fs20\f1  and \fs18\f3 Destination\fs20\f1 . You fill these out with the information about your source and targets.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Fill out the host name or IP address of the hosts or networks in the first field marked \fs18\f3 Host name/IP Address\fs20\f1 . Enter it in standard dotted-decimal notation. When done, press Tab to move to the \fs18\f3 Wildcard mask\fs20\f1  field. The wildcard mask is similar but not exactly identical to the standard IP subnet mask. The wildcard mask is used to determine which bits to ignore when processing the filter. In most cases, it will work very closely like a subnet mask. Place ones (1) under the bits you want the filter to recognize, and keep zeros (0) under the bits you want the filter to ignore.

It uses a simple bit- pattern matching algorithm.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The wildcard mask also does not have to end on a byte boundary; you may mask right into a byte itself. For example, masks 27 bits (255 is 11111111, 224 is 11100000 in binary).\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  IPTraf also accepts host names in place of the IP addresses. IPTraf will resolve the host name when the filter is loaded. When the filter is interpreted, the wildcard mask will also be applied. This can be useful in cases where a single host name may resolve to several IP addresses.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Tip: \b0\f4 See the \i Linux Network Administrator's Guide\i0  if you need more information on IP addresses and subnet masking.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\f2 Tip: \b0\f4 IPTraf allows you to specify the wildcard mask in Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) format. This format allows you to specify the number of 1-bits that mask the address. CIDR notation is the form \i\fs16\f3 address/bits\i0\fs18\f4  where the \i\fs16\f3 address\i0\fs18\f4  is the IP address or host name and \i\fs16\f3 bits\i0\fs18\f4  is the number of 1-bits in the mask. For example, if you want to mask with \fs16\f3\fs18\f4 , note that \fs16\f3\fs18\f4  has 24 1-bits, so instead of specifying \fs16\f3\fs18\f4  in the wildcard mask field, you can just enter \fs16\f3\fs18\f4  in the address field. IPTraf will translate the mask bits into an appropriate wildcard mask and fill in the mask field the next time you edit the filter rule.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li1360\sl198\qj If you specify the mask in CIDR notation, leave the wildcard mask fields blank. If you fill them up, the wildcard mask fields will take precedence.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl220\qj \fs20\lang1033\f1  The \fs18\f3 Port\fs20\f1  fields should contain a port number or range of any TCP or UDP service you may be interested in. If you want to match only a single port number, fill in the first field, while leaving the second blank or set to zero. Fill in the second field if you want to match a range of ports (e.g. 80 to 90). Leave the first field blank or set to zero to let the filter ignore the ports altogether. You will most likely be interested in target ports rather than source ports (which are usually unpredictable anyway, perhaps with the exception of FTP data).\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj Non-TCP and non-UDP packets are not affected by these fields, and these are used only when filtering TCP or UDP packets.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Fill out the second set of fields with the parameters of the opposite end of the connection.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Tip: \b0\f4 Any address or mask fields left blank default to while blank \fs16\f3 Port\fs18\f4  fields default to 0. This makes it easy to define filter rules if you're interested only in either the source or destination, but not the other. For example, you may be interested in traffic originating from network, in which case you just enter the source address, mask and port in the \fs16\f3 Source\fs18\f4  fields, while leaving the \fs16\f3 Destination\fs18\f4  fields blank.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl220\qj \fs20\lang1033\f1 The next fields let you specify which IP-type protocols you want matched by this filter rule. Any packet whose protocol's corresponding field is marked with a \fs18\f3 Y\fs20\f1  is matched against the filter's defined IP addresses and ports, otherwise they don't pass through this filter rule.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj If you want to evaluate all IP packets just mark with \fs18\f3 Y\fs20\f1  the \fs18\f3 All IP\fs20\f1  field.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj For example, if you want to see only all TCP traffic, mark the \fs18\f3 TCP\fs20\f1  field with \fs18\f3 Y\fs20\f1 .\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj The long field marked \fs18\f3 Additional protocols\fs20\f1  allows you to specify other protocols by their IANA number. (You can view the common IP protocol number in the \fs18\f3 /etc/protocols\fs20\f1  file). You can specify a list of protocol numbers or ranges separated by commas, Ranges have the beginning and ending protocol numbers separated with a hyphen.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj For example, to see the RSVP (46), IP mobile (55), and protocols (101 to 104), you use an entry that looks like this:\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl198\qj \fs18\lang1024\f3 46, 55, 101-104\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl220\qj \fs20\lang1033\f1 It's certainly possible to specify any of the protocols listed above in this field. Entering \fs18\f3 1-255\fs20\f1  is functionally identical to marking \fs18\f3 All IP\fs20\f1  with a \fs18\f3 Y\fs20\f1 .\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The next field is marked \fs18\f3 Include/Exclude\fs20\f1 . This field allows you to decide whether to include or filter out matching packets. Setting this field to \fs18\f3 I\fs20\f1  causes the filter to pass matching packets, while setting it to \fs18\f3 E\fs20\f1  causes the filter to drop them. This field is set to \fs18\f3 I\fs20\f1  by default.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj The last field in the dialog is labeled \fs18\f3 Match opposite\fs20\f1 . When set to \fs18\f3 Y\fs20\f1 , the filter will match packets flowing in the opposite direction. Previous versions of IPTraf used to match TCP packets flowing in either direction, so the source and destination address/mask/port combinations were actually interchangeable. Starting with IPTraf 3.0, when filters extended to more than just the IP traffic monitor, this behavior is no longer the default throughout IPTraf except in the IP traffic monitor's TCP window.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Note: \b0\f4 For TCP packets, this field is used in all facilities except the IP traffic monitor. Because the IP traffic monitor must capture TCP packets in both directions to properly determine a closed connection, the filter automatically matches packets in the opposite direction, regardless of this field's setting. However iin all other facilities, automatic matching of the reverse packets is not performed unless you set this field to \fs16\f3 Y\fs18\f4 .\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li1360\sl198\qj Filters for UDP and other IP protocols do not automatically match packets in the opposite direction unless you set the field to \fs16\f3 Y\fs18\f4 , even in the IP traffic monitor.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl220\qj \fs20\lang1033\f1  Press Enter to accept all parameters when done. The parameters will be accepted and you'll be taken back to the rule selection box. You can then add more rules by pressing A or you can insert new rules at any point by pressing I. Should you make a mistake, you can press Enter to edit the selected filter. You may enter as many sets of parameters as you wish. Press Ctrl+X when done.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Note: \b0\f4 Because of the major changes in the filtering system since IPTraf 2.7, old filters will no longer work and will have to be redefined.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li960{\field\flddirty{\*\fldinst INCLUDEPICTURE "iptraf-ipfltdlg.eps" }{\fldrslt }}\keepn\par\pard\sb200\li960\sl220\qj \b\fs20\f1 Figure 7-5.

When this option is active in the statistics windows, the Activity indicators will show a good estimate of the load on your LAN segment.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  When this option is disabled, you'll only receive information about packets coming from and entering your machine.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The setting of this option affects all LAN ( Ethernet, FDDI, some Token Ring) interfaces on your machine, if you have more than one.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The interface's promiscuous flag is set only when a facility is started, and turned off when it exits. However, if promiscuous mode was already set when a facility was started, it remains set on exit.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  If multiple instances of IPTraf are started, the promiscuous setting is restored only upon exit of the last facility.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Note: \b0\f4 Do not use other programs that change the interface's promiscuous flag at the same time you're using IPTraf. The programs can interfere with each other's expected operations. While IPTraf tries to obtain the initial setting of any promiscuous flags for restoration upon exit, other programs may not be as well-behaved, and they may turn off the promiscuous flags while IPTraf is still monitoring.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\s3\sl266 {\*\bkmkstart _1971}{\*\bkmkend _1971}\b\fs24\f2 Color\keepn\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb121\li960\sl220\qj \b0\fs20\lang1033\f1  Turn this on with color monitors.

Since IPTraf 2.4.0, IPTraf prompts you for the name of the file to which to write the logs. It will provide a default name, which you are free to accept or change. The IP traffic monitor and LAN station monitor will generate a log file name that is based on what instance they are (first, second, and so on). The general interface statistics' default log file name is constant, because it listens to all interfaces at once, and only one instance can run at one time.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The other facilities generate a log file name based on the interface they're listening on.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  See the descriptions on the facilities above for the default log file names.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Press Enter to accept the log file name, or Ctrl+X to cancel. Canceling will turn logging off for that session.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The IP traffic monitor will write the following pieces of information to its log file:\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li1160\sl220\fi-200\qj \tx1160 \fs16\lang1024 \'95\tab \fs20 Start of the traffic monitor\hyphpar0\par\pard\li1160\sl220\fi-200\qj \tx1160 \fs16 \'95\tab \fs20 Receipt of the first TCP packet for a connection.

See \i Log Interval...\i0  in this chapter.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  IPTraf closes and reopens the active log file when it receives a \fs18\f3 USR1\fs20\f1  signal. This is useful in cases where a facility is run for long periods of time but the log files have to be cleared or moved.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  To clear or move an active log file, rename it first. IPTraf will continue to write to the file despite the new name. Then use the UNIX kill command to send the running IPTraf process a \fs18\f3 USR1\fs20\f1  signal. IPTraf will then close the log file and open another with the original name. You can then safely remove or delete the renamed file.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  Do not delete an open log file.

The default is 0, which means the screen is updated as fast as possible, giving close-to-realtime reflection of network activity. However, this high-speed update can cause incredible amounts of traffic if IPTraf is run on a remote terminal (e.g. a Telnet or Secure Shell session). You can set this to a higher value, such as 1 or 2 seconds to slow down the updates.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  This figure does not affect the rate of data capture. Only the screen refresh is affected. The figures are still updated as fast as possible, although the figure display will no longer be as close to realtime.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li960\sl220\qj  The default setting is 0, which shouldn't be a problem on the console.

The setting affects all monitoring facilities.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb200\li1360\sl198\qj \b\fs18\lang1024\f2 Note: \b0\f4 Updating the screen is one of the slowest operations in a program. Older versions of IPTraf had a problem once network activity became very high. Because each packet caused a screen update, IPTraf began spending more time with the screen updates, causing a loss of packets once network activity reached a certain point.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li1360\sl198\qj However, since many users like rapid counts on their screen, a compromise was incorporated. Even when the screen update interval is set to 0, there is still a 50ms delay between screen updates (except the LAN station monitor, which has a 100 ms delay). This is still visually fast, but provides more time to the packet capture routine. Higher delays may result in better accuracy of counts and activity.\hyphpar0\par\pard\sb100\li1360\sl198\qj In any case, this setting only affects screen updates.

This is intended as a "brake" to prevent too many rvnamed children from hogging your computer's resources and possibly crashing it. Unless IPTraf is monitoring an extremely busy network without filters, this shouldn't happen, at least, not that often. If you notice this message, try applying filters or check your DNS server.
