pktstat: When you want details

Network tools, network tools … I could keep a blog for a whole year, and write about a different network tool each day.

Or at least it seems that way. Here’s another one for your arsenal: pktstat.

Running there with rtorrent busy in another screen window, which accounts for all the different traffic.

pktstat might seem different from some network “monitors,” in that it seems to concern itself less with volumes and loads, and more with destinations and addresses.

To that end, it might be more useful for tracking down miscreants or pinpointing errant connections.

Either way … it’s another network tool! 😀
