       ethstats — Quickly display statistics of network interfaces




       The  ethstats  utility  is  a  quick  way  to display network interface statistics.  After
       invoking the command the following information will  appear  every  10  seconds  for  each
       interface and a line with totals of all interfaces:

       eth0:    1.00 Mb/s In     1.15 Mb/s Out -      1032.0 p/s In 2300.0 p/s Out

       The  data  shown  is  in  and  out speeds in megabits per second and in and out counts for
       packets per second.  This data is  obtained  by  comparing  /proc/net/dev  each  sampling.
       (Therefore, this tool is Linux specific)
