Official Mirror
nicstat is to network interfaces as iostat is to disks, or prstat
is to processes. It is designed as a much better version of "netstat
-i". Its differences include:
- Reports bytes in & out as well as packets.
- Normalizes these values to per-second rates.
- Reports on all interfaces (while iterating)
- Reports Utilization (rough calculation as of now)
- Reports Saturation (also rough)
- Prefixes statistics with the current time
