Instantaneous CLI bandwidth monitor...?

I did a search on "bandwidth monitor" and came up with some really high brow GUI/web/uber overkill bandwidth monitors.

I'm looking for something really simple that simply displays bps on an interface right now.

Is there a package for something so simple?

For the superlazy:

A bit of google searching revealed bmon. Here's the default pkgbuild with the appropriate fill-ins:

### Contributor: kleptophobiac@gmail.com

pkgname=bmon
pkgver=2.0.1
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="A CLI realtime bandwidth monitor"
url="http://people.suug.ch/~tgr/bmon"
depends=()
makedepends=()
conflicts=()
replaces=()
backup=()
install=
source=(http://people.suug.ch/~tgr/bmon/files/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.gz)
md5sums=('d0da9d05f18c82a621171985d536dec7')

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
}
