Hi, well the question pretty much explains its self, I'm looking for a kernel module that can print out important statistics about all the interfaces on my local machine.

Linux kernel modules shouldn't "print out" anything (there's no stdout in the kernel), so you won't find any such module unless you write it yourself. What's wrong with just using ifconfig?

1- yes things can be printed out( at least to the full terminal screen) using ` printk(KERN_ALERT "Hello world\n");` 2- I want to use the info from ifconfig in my main kernel module...

What would be the point of a kernel module that does exactly the same as a user level command? Consider, what is the purpose of the kernel?
