Using netstat for Linux

Netstat is a generic UNIX and Linux utility that displays the
contents of various network-related structures in various formats.
These formats are determined by the options passed to the netstat
command.
Netstat is very good at telling you what is happening on the
network at the current time, but netstat does not give a good
trending capability or periodic snapshot functionality. Most network
administrators purchase a specialized third-party tool for long-term
network monitoring. Let's look at some of the network information
that netstat provides about the current state of the network.

Hopefully, this brief description of the netstat utility will give
you an appreciation for the scope and complexity of network tuning.
In practice, an experienced Linux network administrator will have
specialized utilities such as Linux sniffers, that will monitor and tune
network traffic.
