(a perl script!) which shows bandwidth consumed and
total data transferred on all interfaces.

    Looks very neat. Do you have examples of practical application of this tool? At my work, we have Big Sister monitor tracking our front end web servers on various system parameters. It generates clear html status pages and emails responsible parties on any critical errors/values. However, the monitor doesn't include the bandwidth variable. ;/

    # Under Construction

      ibmontor is supposed to be more of an "at the moment" kind
      of application (whatever that means) :-)

      It does not save any data. It just shows whats happening
      at that moment

      Although, I have future plans to make it run as a daemon,
      and save its data, so that other utilities, like a CGI script
      could get relevant data from ibmonitor (by some kind of IPC),
      and then output some nice HTML page
      Thanx for replying!
