Bandwidth Monitoring.

Hi,

I'm looking for some way to bring up in a shell window a realtime (or something that updates at 10 second intervals or whatever) bandwidth monitor.

I just want something that shows me how much kbps is going in and how much is going out of each interface. Is there something that might already be included with my SuSE 9.2 installation for this or is there something I can download?

Note: I'm not looking for something that shows TCP packets, I'm looking for something that shows actual kbps units. Bonus if it shows usage per application too Smilie

Thanks,

Chris

OK I feel like a muppet now lol.

iptraf

does exactly what I want and more. Just configure it to show KBytes rather than kbits and look under detailed status.

Good good... carry on Smilie

Bandwidth Monitoring.

Hi,

Have you tried IFSTAT - http://gael.roualland.free.fr/ifstat/ ?
It worked fine for me on Solaris and other platforms.
