DESCRIPTION


The purpose of
vnstati

is to provide image output support for statistics collected using
vnstat(1).

The image file format is limited to png. All basic outputs
of vnStat are supported excluding live traffic features. The image
can be outputted either to a file or to standard output.


 

OPTIONS



-c, –cache time


Update output file only if at least
time

minutes have passed since the previous file update. This option is ignored if
stdout is used as output.


–config file


Use
file

as config file instead of using normal config file search function.


-d, –days


Output traffic for days.


–dbdir directory


Use
directory

as database directory instead of using the directory specified in the configuration
file or the hardcoded default if no configuration file is available.


-h, –hours


Output traffic for the last 24 hours.


-hs, –hsummary


Output traffic summary including hourly data using a horizontal layout.


-i, –iface interface


Use
interface

instead of default or configured interface.


–locale locale


Use
locale

instead of using the locale setting specified in the configuration file or the system
default if no configuration file is available.


-m, –months


Output traffic for months.


-ne, –noedge


Remove darker edges from around the image.


-nh, –noheader


Remove header containing title and update time. Time of the previous update
will still be visible in the lower right corner using a less visible color.


-o, –output file


Write png image to
file

and exit. Output can be directed to stdout by giving "-" as filename.


-ru, –rateunit


Swap the configured rate unit. If rate has been configured to be shown in
bytes then rate will be shown in bits if this option is present. In the same
way, if rate has been configured to be shown in bits then rate will be shown
in bytes when this option is present. Alternatively 0 or 1 can be given as
parameter for this option in order to select between bytes (0) and bits
(1) regardless of the configuration file setting.


–style number


Modify the content and style of outputs. Setting
number

to 3 will show average traffic rate in all outputs where it is supported.
Other values will show bar graphics instead.


-s, –summary


Output traffic summary.


-t, –top10


Output all time top10 traffic days.


–transparent


Toggle background color transparency depending of the TransparentBg setting
in the configuration file. Alternatively 0 or 1 can be given as parameter
for this option in order to either disable (0) or enable (1) transparency
regardless of the configuration file setting.


-v, –version


Show current version.


-vs, –vsummary


Output traffic summary including hourly data using a vertical layout.


-?, –help


Show a command summary.



 

FILES



/var/lib/vnstat/


Default database directory. Files are named according to the monitored interfaces.
/etc/vnstat.conf


Config file that will be used unless
$HOME/.vnstatrc

exists. See
vnstat.conf(5)

for more information.


 

EXAMPLES



vnstati -s -i eth0 -o /tmp/vnstat.png


Output traffic summary for interface eth0 to file /tmp/vnstat.png.


vnstati -vs -i eth0+eth1+eth2 -o /tmp/vnstat.png


Output traffic summary with hourly data under the normal summary for a merge of
interfaces eth0, eth1 and eth2 to file /tmp/vnstat.png.


vnstati -h -c 15 -o /tmp/vnstat_h.png


Output hourly traffic statistics for default interface to file /tmp/vnstat_h.png
if the file has not been updated within the last 15 minutes.


vnstati -d -ne -nh -o -


Output daily traffic statistics without displaying the header section and edges
for default interface to standard output (stdout).


vnstati -m –config /home/me/vnstat.cfg -i -o -


Output monthly traffic statistics for default interface specified in configuration
file /home/me/vnstat.cfg to standard output (stdout).
