Hey, I'd like to ask you all a question, that is ought to be simple -- what exactly does each field of netstat -s -p ip output mean ?, E.g.
26740727 total packets received
14 bad header checksums
0 with size smaller than minimum
0 with data size < data length
0 with ip length > max ip packet size
0 with header length < data size
0 with data length < header length
0 with bad options
0 with incorrect version number
365 fragments received
0 fragments dropped (dup or out of space)
0 fragments dropped after timeout
122 packets reassembled ok
26734571 packets for this host
5847 packets for unknown/unsupported protocol
0 packets forwarded (0 packets fast forwarded)
37 packets not forwardable
0 packets received for unknown multicast group
0 redirects sent
28384081 packets sent from this host
0 packets sent with fabricated ip header
0 output packets dropped due to no bufs, etc.
0 output packets discarded due to no route
6054 output datagrams fragmented
27879 fragments created
0 datagrams that can't be fragmented
0 tunneling packets that can't find gif
0 datagrams with bad address in header
Im especially interested in 'packets not forwardable'.
What does presence of "not forwardable packets" mean ? Thanks in advance for Your kind help.
