gpppkill is a program for Linux that ends a ppp connection.
gpppkill is a program for Linux that terminates the ppp connection if:
it not receive a minimal amount of bytes during a certain amount of time.
the online time reaches the maximum time defined.
It show a graph with the incoming/outgoing bytes/s and some link statistic.It is written in C++ and uses the GTK+ X11 toolkit.
Here are some key features of "gpppkill":
· Shows a bar plot according to the amount of bytes received per second.
· Shows a bar plot according to the amount of bytes sended per second.
· Shows a bar plot according to the amount of bytes sended/received per second.
· bytes received per second.
· bytes sent per second.
· total of bytes sent.
· total of byte received.
· Average of 'bytes in' in the last minute (KB/min)
· Average of 'bytes out' in the last minute (KB/min)
· Average of 'total bytes in' (Total_Kbytes_in/uptime)
· Average of 'total bytes out' (Total_Kbytes_out/uptime)
· idletime: terminate the ppp connection if it does not receive a minimal amount of bytes during a certain amount of time.
· onlinetime: terminate the ppp connection if it reaches the maximal online time limit.
Information of the ppp connection:
· number of process ID (PID).
· name of the interface.
· uptime of the connection.
· In replacement of quickmessage window.
· Pop-Up menu (right button of mouse to activate).
· Possibility of hiding the modules that are not wanted to see.
· Detects all the running pppd and let you choose which to kill.
· Save the preferences to ~/.gpppkillrc. Including the window position.
· You can specify the width of the bars in the bar plot(command line option).
· warntime: gpppkill will warn you when it is trying to kill the pppd.
· glib 1.2.10
What's New in This Release:
· Use of the ESC key as the equivalent of closing the warning window.
· When you see the (warning) window before gpppkill ends the link, the default button now is "Restart" and not "Kill". Suggested by Ale Feltes.
· First version of the equivalent of a -h (human redeable) option. Just click on Total Bytes in/out to cycle the scale(b,Kb,Mb) Suggested by Ale Feltes.
· Better handling of the size of the main window
