in reply to How to monitor internet speed in real time?

What is "internet speed" to you? Is it derived as

    distance_flown_by_the_internet
---------------------------------------
time_when_it_lands-time_when_I_threw_it
Or is it the speed of data through your internet interface? If the later, I use the following script as an input to MRTG graph:
open(INP,"</proc/net/dev") || die "Can not open /proc/net/dev: $!"; while (<INP>) { s/eth0:(\d)/eth0: $1/; @a=split; print "$a[1]\n$a[9]\n" if ($a[0]=~s/eth0://); }
This, of course, is highly system dependent...
