Nload is a console application which monitors network traffic and bandwidth
usage in real time. It displays the total amount of data that has been
transferred over a network device since the last reboot, the current bandwidth
usage, and the minimum, maximum, and average bandwidth usage measured
since it started.
If the user wants, it is also able to display two bars, similar to progress
bars, presenting the current load graphically. Support for displaying several
devices simultaneously is included.
