Operating System: Linux
The utility reads /proc/net/dev and /proc/uptime files in order to print out bandwidth usage at user selected intervals, maximum bandwidth usage since initialization of the utility and average bandwidth usage since the last reboot. This is done based on network interface.
Tested on Linux 2.2.x, 2.4.x and 2.5.x, SuSE and RedHat distributions.
