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.

    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.

    Why not check it into OpenSolaris.org ???
