NAME
       dropwatch - kernel dropped packet monitoring utility

SYNOPSIS
       dropwatch [-l <method> | list]

DESCRIPTION
       dropwatch  dropwatch  is  an interactive utility for monitoring and recording packets that
       are dropped by the kernel

OPTIONS
       -l <method> | list
	      Select the translation method to use when a drop alert arrives.  By default the raw
	      instruction  pointer of a drop location is output, but by the use of the -l option,
	      we can assign a translation method so that the instruction pointer  can  be  trans-
	      lated into function names.  Currently supported lookup methods are:

       kas - use /proc/kallsyms to lookup instruction pointers to function mappings

INTERACTIVE COMMANDS
       start  Tells the kernel to start reporting dropped packets

       stop   Tells the kernel to discontinue reporting dropped packets

       exit   Exits the dropmonitor program

       help   Displays summary of all commands

       set alertlimit <value>
	      Sets  a  triggerpoint  to  stop monitoring for dropped packets after <value> alerts
	      have been received
