Re: crontab


I think what you're looking for is the -B command-line option.  This is
used to place the program in the background and gather statistics from
there while at the  same time start logging.

Try this command:

	iptraf -s eth0 -B

You may also want to consider the t option to set a time limit, say, to
run the facility for only 15 minutes before terminating, you can say

	iptraf -s eth0 -B -t 15

Hope this helps.
