     ATSTAT(1)	      K-Talk by	Xinet (10/14/99	10.1)	     ATSTAT(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  atstat - dump	the AppleTalk tables and statistics

     SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  atstat [ -x ]	[unix]

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  The atstat command prints out	tables and statistics that it
	  reads	from the AppleTalk kernel implementation.   When
	  invoked, it will print a list	of tables and let you select
	  one at a time	for viewing. The -x flag will cause all
	  numbers to be	printed	in hexadecimal.

	  There	are options for	viewing	the AARP, DDP, and RTMP
	  statistics.	These statistics are relatively	selfexplanatory,
 and will	very from implementation to
	  implementation.  They	can all	be reset to zero by using the
	  "Clear statistics" option.

	  The AppleTalk	Address	Resolution Protocol (AARP) table
	  contains the Net, Node, and EtherNet address of all nodes
	  currently directly addressable.  There will be a dummy entry
	  for each defended loopback node, specifying lo0 as the
	  interface.  Only entries with	the flag COM set are complete.
	  The timer field specifies the	number of 50-second intervals
	  which	have elapsed since the entry was utilized.  Unused
	  entries are timed-out	and flushed to keep the	AARP table
	  from filling up.

	  The RTMP table contains an entry for each net	that is
	  reachable from the machine. The router field contains	the
	  net and node numbers of the router which advertises the
	  shortest distance to the net,	and the	dist field lists the
	  number of hops to that net.  The Ethernet address is the
	  address of that router, and the interface is the host
	  interface which can communicate with that router.

	  The ATCB table is a list of the active AppleTalk Control
	  Blocks.  There is an entry for each AppleTalk	socket open on
	  the host.  The address is the	socket address on the local
	  host.	If the local net and node number are both zero,	this
	  socket will accept packets addressed to its socket from any
	  network attached to this host.  These	sockets	are used by
	  the various daemons to maximize performance.	 The type
	  field	is one of the known AppleTalk protocol types.	 The
	  AARP and RTMP	fields indicate	whether	this socket has	cached
	  AARP or RTMP entrys for the node it is communicating with.

     SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
	  A more complete description of the various tables is
	  included in the K-Talk Administrator's Guide.

     DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]
	  atstat: atopensock: error	Typically this means that the
					AppleTalk kernel (or module)
					is not running.

	  atstat: SIOGETLOCS failed: error
					Indicates a system resource
					problem	or mismatched versions
					of atstat and AppleTalk

	  atstat: could	not open /dev/kmem
					This means that	the user
					executing atstat did not have
					sufficient permissions to read
					/dev/kmem.  atstat can be made
					setgid kmem so all users can
					run it.
