Monitoring bandwidth usage

As an alternative to using IPTraf, you can use ifstatus to monitor your network bandwidth usage. Install ifstatus using your package manager and run it as root. Type I and q when it is running to create an initial configuration file to /root/.ifstatus/ifstatus.cfg. Editing this file and set the interface you want to monitor.

Now run ifstatus again to start monitoring the select interface(s). Press h to see the available keys you can use to change the ifstatus output.
