3.118.2. StatsType Previous topic Parent topic Child topic Next topic

By default statistics produce counter, for example cumulative, values. You can change this with StatsType parameter. The parameter value is the output type and can be one of:
  • cumulative: cumulative counter shows the number of processed packets.
  • derivative: derivative is the difference (delta) between two counter values in time interval.
  • packet_rate: packet rate is the amount of packets transferred within time interval (packets per second).
  • all: all produces output from all available statistic types (cumulative, derivative and packet_rate).
The default output type is cumulative.
# We are interested in the difference (delta)
