nicstat - Update for Solaris only

Update - August 2009

That's more like it - we should get plenty of coverage now :)

A colleague pointed out to me that nicstat's method of calculating utilization for a full-duplex interface is not correct.

Now nicstat will look for the kstat "link_duplex" value, and if it is 2 (which means full-duplex), it will use the greater of rbytes or wbytes to calculate utilization.

No change to the Linux version. Use the links in my previous post for downloading.

Comments:

This is great. We had taken to ignoring the util% column of nicstat and computing our own metric based on the actual throughput. Thanks a bunch.
