constat is a program that allows you to monitor the activity of any network
connection that are active. It is simple to install and use, works under any
Linux system, and does not require the X server. Information may be output for
all connections or just one. Output can be printed in units of KB, MB, or GB,
along with the number of transmitted packets. It has a real time monitoring
option, based on a 5-second timer.
