    2 # What is vnStat
    3 
    4 vnStat is a console-based network traffic monitor that uses the network
    5 interface statistics provided by the kernel as information source. This
    6 means that vnStat won't actually be sniffing any traffic and also ensures
    7 light use of system resources regardless of network traffic rate.
    8 
    9 By default, traffic statistics are stored on a five minute level for the last
   10 48 hours, on a hourly level for the last 4 days, on a daily level for the
   11 last 2 full months and on a yearly level forever. The data retention durations
   12 are fully user configurable. Total seen traffic and a top days listing is also
   13 provided. Optional image output is available in systems with the GD library
   14 installed.
   15 
   16 See the webpage https://humdi.net/vnstat/ for output examples.
