alternatives to xnetload
 
Hi,

I've been using xnetload since I started to use Linux, almost 10 years
ago. Now that it is obsolete, what are other recommended alternatives?

thanks

Conky and GKrellM both do a nice job. I personally use a Conky
configuration where I have what works to this effect:

${if_up eth0}
eth0: up, addr $alignr ${addr eth0}
Up ${alignr} Down
${upspeed eth0}${alignr}${downspeed eth0}
${upspeedgraph, 20,100 eth0}${alignr}${downspeedgraph 20,100 eth0}
${else}
eth0: down
${endif}

See http://i.imgur.com/u3bKA.png for a recent screenshot of my desktop,
conky living in the upper right hand corner.

GKRellM is a bit different, and has a much more graphical look to it.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, conky seems to gain the most reputation.

Could I have your whole conky configuration for your setting?

thanks
