NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     stlstats -- Stallion Technologies multiport serial statistics display

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     stlstats [-hVi] [-c control-device] [-b board-number] [-p port-number]
	      [-d port-device]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The stlstats utility is used to display statistical information about the
     ports on Stallion Technologies multiport serial boards.

     The stlstats utility normally runs as a full screen menu driven application.
  A help line is displayed at the bottom of each screen with the
     valid input keys for this screen.

     Generally the digit keys ('0' through '9') specify the number of the
     device to display statistics for.	Where digits alone are not enough to
     access all possible devices (for example on 16 port panels) then the
     first letters of the alphabet are used to access the remaining devices.
     The letters 'a' through 'f' are used to access devices 10 through 15.

     The 'q' key is always used to move back to the previous level screen.
     The escape key can also be used to move back to the previous screen.

     The first screen is a display of all ports on panel 0 of board 0.	Values
     displayed on this screen are a summary of the information for each port.
     The statistics displayed are: driver and TTY state flags, termios flags
     (cflags, iflags, oflags, lflags), RS-232 signal values (as per TIOCM signal
 defines), total transmit and receive character counts.

     From this screen you can look at summary information about each panel and
     board installed in the system.  Each board is accessed by the digit keys
     ('0' through '7'), while panels of each board can be cycled through using
     the 'n' key.

     The per port screen displays some detailed information about a particular
     port.  This is accessed from the board screen using the 'p' key.  The
     first port displayed will be port 0.  To display other ports use the
     digit and alphabetic keys ('0' through '9' and 'a' through 'f').  This
     screen displays: driver and TTY state flags, hardware ID, termios flags
     (cflags, iflags, oflags, lflags), total transmitted and received character
 counts, current transmit and receive characters buffered, receiver
     error counts (overruns, parity, framing, lost), software flow control
     characters transmitted and received, hardware flow control actions taken,
     count of transmitted and received breaks, modem signal transitions and
     current RS-232 signal states.

     The options are:

     -h      Output usage information.

     -V      Output version information.

     -i      Output only the board type information.  This output is useful
	     for scripts or other programs that need to know a little bit
	     about the board (for example an automated download script).  The
	     stlstats utility will not enter full screen interactive mode.

     -c control-device
	     Specify the board control device through which to gather port
	     statistics.  The default is /dev/staliomem0.

     -b board-number
	     Specify the board number to display first.  The default is to
	     display board 0.

     -p port-number
	     Specify the port number to display first.	The stlstats utility
	     will go straight into the port display screen (bypassing board
	     display) when this option is used.

     -d port-device
	     Specify the port special device file (the /dev/ttyXXX file) to
	     display first.  The board screen is bypassed and the port statistics
 screen is shown immediately on start up.
