[HOWTO] pktstat – Monitor Your Bandwdith Usage

Print this post Email this post

pktstat is used to monitor bandwidth per connection. Instead of bandwidth per interface, this “top” like software will allow you to see what connection is established, and what data is retrieved. For HTTP traffic, it also shows what is the path for the file that’s being accessed and how much bandwidth (in bps/Bps and %) that is used by that file.
