Slurm – network load monitor

Valic —  July 15, 2010 — 1 Comment

Slurm started as a port of pppstatus to FreeBSD and now is a generic curses based network load monitor.

It was then transformed into a generic network load monitor that supports *BSD, Linux, HP-UX, and Solaris.

Slurm shows `realtime’ traffic statistics, has three graph modes, can monitor any network device, and uses curses to draw ascii graphics, including ascii theme support.

Step 1. Installation:

apt-get install slurm

Step 2. Slurm usage:

slurm [-hHz] [-csl] [-d delay] [-t theme] -i interface


slurm -i eth0
