NAME

       pcap_stats - get capture statistics


SYNOPSIS

       #include <pcap/pcap.h>

       int pcap_stats(pcap_t *p, struct pcap_stat *ps);


DESCRIPTION

       pcap_stats()  fills in the pcap_stat structure pointed to by its second
       argument.  The values represent packet statistics from the start of the
       run to the time of the call.

       pcap_stats()  is supported only on live captures, not on ``savefiles'';
       no statistics are stored in ``savefiles'', so no statistics are  avail-
       able when reading from a ``savefile''.


RETURN VALUE

       pcap_stats()  returns  0 on success and returns -1 if there is an error
       or the p  doesn't  support  packet  statistics.   If  -1  is  returned,
       pcap_geterr()  or  pcap_perror() may be called with p as an argument to
       fetch or display the error text.
