I might be mistaken but is there 2 ifstat ? one give a real time list of net operation and the other one gives only a summary

I could track the first one to net-analyzer/ifstat but cannot find the provenance of /usr/sbin/ifstat

a search on the net gives only information over the first one /usr/bin/ifstat

any idea where they come from, why there is 2 of them and how to find the sbin version ?

I have /sbin/ifstat and it comes from the iproute2 package.

thank you Anon-E-moose

I suppose I could have find out using some emerge or eix function but I took too long to think about it

as well I was surprise to find 2 package with the same function but working differently and having the same name

reup ... afaik emerge or eix doesn't have the ability to corrolate files to packages, for this you need 'equery' (app-portage/gentoolkit) or 'e-file' (app-portage/pfl). The former can provide the package name of an installed file, ie:

Code:
# equery belongs /sbin/ifstat
 * Searching for /sbin/ifstat ...
sys-apps/iproute2-3.8.0 (/sbin/ifstat)

The latter can show any package (installed or not) which includes a file by that name (useful if say you want to know if there are more than one of such files, as in the case of 'ifstat'), ie:

Code:
# e-file ifstat | awk '!/(Last|Version)/{print}'
[I] sys-apps/iproute2
   Matched Files: /sbin/ifstat;

 * net-analyzer/ifstat
   Matched Files: /usr/bin/ifstat;

HTH & best ... khay
