gnetload network load meter

The gnetload network load meter is a network and ISDN load meter that is similar to xisdnload, but works in a distributed environment. It includes an agent (devstata) that runs on machines with interfaces to be monitored and periodically sends status information over the network. A display program (gnetload) collects and displays the data. Both can be run on the same machine, or be used to report on the state of a dedicated router on another machine. Using multicast or broadcast addresses, data can be fed to more than one instance of gnetload. A menu for taking network interfaces up and down is also provided.
