Does anyone know of a good app that will tell me the total transferred (up and down) from my NIC? Not for server or protocol monitoring, just a simple app to tell me how many bytes have passed through my NIC. In Windows, I use DU Meter (http://www.dumeter.com) .

Thanks

I use Network Monitor 2.8.0. It comes with the current Gnome supplied with Fedora 3. Just right click on a toolbar and add the network monitor. Will put two little screens stacked showing activity and when clicked on will show amount of data sent and recieved over the network. I use ndiswrapper and it works fine with it.

Cool, thanks Woffles! Does it keep stats forever or just on reboot? I think it's just on reboot 'cause i know I've xferred more than 31.7 MB.
