GUI tool to show Network Bandwidth

Sat Mar 16, 2019 10:16 am

I've spent way more time than I should trying to find a window based traffic monitor program such as Networx to show the network usage on my XFCE panel or desktop Image.
Anyone got any idea?

I found some XFCE panel tool that allows me to get the throughput represented by bars (see attachement) but that;s not entirely what I'm after.

To install the network monitor applet.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install xfce4-netload-plugin 
There are other useful plugins here: https://www.funtoo.org/XFCE_Panel_Plugins
