I have and embedded system which apparently, due to space considerations, is missing lots of normal commands. I can get the following information by "cat /proc/version":
Linux version 2.4.19-uc0 (...) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)(ColdFire patches - 20010318 from http://fiddes.net/coldfire/)(-msep-data
patches)) #461 Tue May 24 12:06:06 PDT 2011
At issue is the fact that, after some time, the system stops responding to the Network (e.g., you can ping it, then some time later you can't). We suspect that some sort of network monitor is accessing the device and causing the trouble, but don't know for sure.
What I would like to do is log some sort of useful network status information and/or be able to reset the network if I can figure out there is an issue from within the device.
I thought I had it all working using "/etc/init.d/network restart" but I've come to find out that the command is not recognised in this system. I also can't issue a "top" command to see what services are running. I can Telnet in, so I can try commands and see if they work.
Have any of you worked with such an abbr. system and if so, what might be around that I'm unaware of to help determine network status?
