Monitoring IP Traffic Statistics

Purpose

Display statistics about IP traffic. You can use the ipTraffic log to show consumable IP traffic to the SRP module; the traffic is filterable per router and IP interface. You can show ICMP, TCP, and UDP traffic with the icmpTraffic, udpTraffic, and tcpTraffic logs.

Action

To display statistics about IP traffic:
