You can do the legwork and decide if I was right. ethstatus is the kind of network monitor most people watch for when they move to a console environment — more than just data, with enough animation to keep it visual.
It has a few flags to effectively adjust the vertical scale, so if you have a line speed higher than my meager 80kbps, you’ll do fine.
My only complaint about this one is probably obvious: The authors never intended for it to live in a terminal beyond 80×25 or so. There’s a lot of wasted space there.
I suppose I could file a bug report. Somewhere. … 😐
There are a lot of similar monitors out there though. pppstatus and slurm are a year or so down the line, but there are more coming.
Just remember to watch your spelling when you install this one. ethstatus, not ethstats. … 😉
