Is there any tools to get the information about status of data receiving and sending in Ethernet (Real-time information is better, GUI tools is better)?

The information includes:

sending and receiving rate (Mbps) total data sending and receiving since start the machine (this is optional)


There are several available. A full-fledged network tool is iptraf (http://iptraf.seul.org/).

Otherwise, nload is a tool that just shows network bandwidth usage, in a simple and neat way.

If you want to run network benchmarks, look for netserver/netperf or iperf.

  • Thanks, however what are the dependencies of iptraf? – pah8J May 10 '18 at 4:39
  • According to the (out-of-date) docs at iptraf.seul.org/download.html iptraf is also available as RPM and DEB package, so you just let the Package Manager take care of that. – dr01 May 10 '18 at 10:31
  • Thank you so much, are there any other project which is still under maintenance? – pah8J May 10 '18 at 23:34
  • Do you mean "maintained"? I think the others project I mentioned are currently maintained, I haven't checked though. – dr01 May 11 '18 at 6:52
