displaying network card throughput


Hi,
What is the best way to calculate network card throughput on linux?
netstat -i command just displays the packets received. How can you calculate the throughput?

Thanks
Kapil

maybe try "iptraf"

it's a network monitor, and as long as it runs, it counts all the incoming/outgoing bytes/packets on the network device you specify
