    command-line network monitor

    afternoon (for those in the uk anyway),

    does anyone know of a command-line tool to monitor network activity. i'm specifically looking for percentage of bandwidth used /throughput.

    something similar to top, but for the network interface.

    TIA, rotis23

    You could check out IPTraf. based on Ncurses

    project homepage:

    or you could just try tcpdump as root like vVv suggested
