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
