Monitor Network Traffic from bash.


Is there a program that will let me monitor network traffic from bash? I SSH into my box, I run an FTP server and want to see what kind of bandwidth is being used also what kind of speeds I'm transmitting at. Basically I'm looking for a program like gkrealm that runs from command line itself .

It looks like a nice program, but I'm really not looking for a server client type setup. All I really want to do is monitor the network UL/DL speeds in real time. I'm surprised that I'm the first to request this type of program .

No problem - it is all just the question of finding the right tools.
