    Monitor Network Traffic from bash.


    Is there a program that will let me monitor network traffic from bash? I SSH into my box, I run an FTP server and want to see what kind of bandwidth is being used also what kind of speeds I'm transmitting at. Basically I'm looking for a program like gkrealm that runs from command line itself .

    For anyone who reads my post and is wondering the same thing, I found the program I was looking for. It's called bmon and can be found here http://people.suug.ch/~tgr/bmon/ It can monitor multiple interfaces, has a nice user interface as well. Hope this helps someone.

    Isn't it though? I still want others to learn from my experiences.

    download the stuff into your shell/box, tar -vxzf xxxx.tar.gz, ./configure, make, make install

    if you're not the root user,use ./configure --prefix=/home/adam/bmon


    good luck

    can anyone tell me how to install this bmon ? All I get after ./configure
    is problems with C compiler ...C compiler cannot dreate executables :( Is there anything or maybe the latest kernel would help that would nor give me these kind of problem. This concerns not only bmon instalation, but anything I try to install. RPM installs fine but sometimes I need do it other way
