This week I wanted to give you some really simple tools for monitoring your machine’s bandwidth usage. I’ll be including a few really great tools you can run directly from the terminal (CLI) and this means you can run them remotely via SSH without the concern of overhead of a GUI.
We’ll be covering NLoad, CBM (Color Bandwidth Monitor), IFTop (Interface Top), and BMon (Bandwidth Monitor). I’ll also be using the Terminator terminal interface as I allows for splitting the interface into sections both horizontally and vertically.
