Bandwidth monitor: simple but efficient

June 21st, 2010 No comments

Today, I was looking for a small tool to display interface usage on Solaris, I tried first iftop. However, after spent few hours to try to build it (including ncurses, libpcap) I finally got a binary, but it’s not working! After google for few minutes, I found Bandwitdth monitor NG. It’s a very simple software, which uses only few libraries, and works like a charm!

Here a snapshot:

And for information, ldd output :

% ldd /opt/tools/bwm-ng-0.6/bin/bwm-ng => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/ => /lib/
