InfoThis was influenced by the old bwm util written by Barney (firstname.lastname@example.org) which had some issues with faster interfaces and was very simple. Since i had almost all code done anyway for other projects, i decided to create my own version.
I actually dont know if netstat input is usefull at all. I saw this elsewhere, so i added it. Its target is "netstat 1.42 (2001-04-15)" linux or Free/Open/netBSD. If there are other formats i would be happy to add them.
For info about libstatgrab please refer to http://www.i-scream.org/libstatgrab/
