Major TCP/IP Administrative Tasks (Task Map)

The following table lists other miscellaneous tasks to administer the network after initial configuration, such as displaying network information. The table includes a description of what each task accomplishes and the section in the current documentation where the specific steps to perform the task are detailed.

For Information
Display statistics on a per-protocol basis.
Monitor the performance of the network protocols on a particular system.
Display network status.
Monitor your system by displaying all sockets and routing table entries. The output includes the inet address family for IPv4 and inet6 address family for IPv6.
Display the status of network interfaces.
Monitor the performance of network interfaces, which is useful for troubleshooting transmission problems.
Display packet transmission status.
Monitor the state of packets as they are sent over the wire.
Control the display output of IPv6-related commands.
Controls the output of the ping, netstat, and traceroute commands. Creates a file that is named inet_type. Sets the DEFAULT_IP variable in this file.
Monitor network traffic.
Displays all IP packets by using the snoop command.
Trace all routes that are known to the network's routers.
Uses the traceroute command to show all routes.

Note - To monitor network interfaces, refer to Monitoring IP Interfaces and Addresses in Connecting Systems Using Fixed Network Configuration in Oracle Solaris 11.1
