Project ifchk - Host Based Promiscuous Mode Detection and Handling.
__________________________________________________ ________________

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.
