<H1>PPPLoad</H1>

<P>PPPLoad is designed to display the current throughput of a particular
PPP link in a format that is similar to <TT>xload</TT>. PPPLoad has the
following features:</P>

<UL>
<LI>Displays average throughput in bytes per second for both transmit and
receive.</LI>

<LI>Throughput is shown as a bar graph, like <TT>xload</TT>.</LI>

<LI>Transmit rate is shown in <FONT COLOR="#008000">forestgreen</FONT><FONT COLOR="#000000">,
and receive rate is shown in </FONT><FONT COLOR="#FF0000">red</FONT><FONT COLOR="#000000">.</FONT></LI>

<LI><FONT COLOR="#000000">Transmit and receive are shown on the same graph,
with transmit drawn on top of receive (receive is likely to be always more
than transmit).</FONT></LI>

<LI><FONT COLOR="#000000">For every 512 bytes per second of throughput,
a horizontal line is drawn.</FONT></LI>

<LI><FONT COLOR="#000000">The graph automatically scales to fit the maximum
transmit or receive rate.</FONT></LI>

<LI><FONT COLOR="#000000">The total number of bytes transmitted and received
is displayed.</FONT></LI>
</UL>
