Projects / Interactive Bandwidth Monitor

Interactive Bandwidth Monitor

ibmonitor is an interactive Linux console application which shows bandwidth consumed and total data transferred on all interfaces. It shows received, transmitted, and total bandwidth, calculates and displays the combined value of all interfaces; can display values in Kbits/sec(Kbps) and/or KBytes/sec(KBps), can show the maximum bandwidth consumed, can show average bandwidth consumption, and can interactively change its output display format.
