nload – network bandwith monitor for the console

nload, a decent network bandwith monitor for the linux console (you can thus use it to quickly monitor the available bandwidth on your remote linux server): – nload: monitor network traffic and bandwidth usage

# emerge nload (surprise, surprise ;)

usage (for example):

# nload -i 2000 -o 400

(where 2000 is the [i]ncoming/downstream and 400 the [o]utgoing/upstream bandwith of my server in kbit/s)

(note that it doesn’t brew coffee, though ;)

(kudos to Crypto from #gentoo for the hint)
