  1. ANNOUNCING ifchk-0.95 Beta3 For IRIX/Linux

    Supported Platforms: IRIX, Linux
    -------------------

    ifchk is a network interface promiscuous mode detection tool written
    with both
    security and system administrative applications in mind. The program
    will:

    - Report on the operational state (PROMISC, normal, down, etc) of each
    interface attached to the system.

    - Shutdown all interfaces running in promiscuous mode, if told to do so.

    - Report per-interface traffic metrics to help identify spikes in
    network
    traffic flow.

    - Log per-interface state information and traffic metric dump invocation
    via syslogd.


    Summary of Changes:
    ------------------

    + Maturation of a new program framework/plug-in architecture consisting
    of a
    generic program front end that accepts, at compile time, either an
    IRIX or
    Linux plug-in module that implements core interface management
    functionality.

    + Enhancement of the event loggin subsystem.

    + Enhancement of the error handling subsystem.


    Feedback (suggestions, bug reports, problems, etc) is welcomed and can
