I do not know of an icon, but I am using GKrellM. It provides many different system monitors and sits on the side of my desktop.

Is this a panel icon and how did you add it?

It is not an icon, but a stack of system monitors. Here is the link to the Web site:
http://members.dslextreme.com/users/...m/gkrellm.html
To install it:

#apt-get install gkrellm

Then I looked for plug-ins:

#apt-cache search gkrellm

That provides a list of plug-ins in addition to the ones provided. After you finish, look under applications > Debian > apps > system and it will be in that menu. Click on it to run it, and then right click on the panel anywhere to configure it.

Good Luck. Let me know how it goes.

I went into Add to Panel on Gnome. It's was listed as Network Monitor. Similar to the Windows net monitor icon.
