If i run tor, i see in syslog sometimes lines like this:
Code:
Jan 28 19:11:58 vm82 Tor[11043]: Heartbeat: Tor's uptime is 17:59 hours, with 2 circuits open. I've sent 12.87 MB and received 384.34 MB.

How can i get this "status messages" by command line?

How can i see and be save that all traffic include dns requests goes by the tor network?

There's a section about that in the wiki, but it's good to read the entire page, which, btw, is an excellent resource considering the amount of garbage there's out there.
