bwm-ng (Bandwidth Monitor NG)
bwm-ng 0.3 screenshot Bandwidth Monitor NG is a small and simple console-based live network and disk io bandwidth monitor for Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X and others.

It is licensed under GPL2.

This was influenced by the old bwm util written by Barney (barney@freewill.tzo.com) which had some issues with faster interfaces and was very simple. Since i had almost all code done anyway for other projects, i decided to create my own version.

I actually dont know if netstat input is usefull at all. I saw this elsewhere, so i added it. Its target is "netstat 1.42 (2001-04-15)" linux or Free/Open/netBSD. If there are other formats i would be happy to add them.

For info about libstatgrab please refer to http://www.i-scream.org/libstatgrab/
