Wow, that looks pretty cool! I'm gonna have to take a look at that.

All the best,

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

For monitoring network traffic and bandwidth usage I like to use nload http://www.roland-riegel.de/nload/scree … index.html
I doesn't have colors, but seems to scale with windows resize.

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

Iftop does the job well too, with the added benefit of displaying active network connections.

Nice little app smile

Obviously (from the commit log) it's a very recently started project, but would you like any feature requests/bugs/etc adding on github... or just leave it to you for a while until the project gets a little older?

Flickering should be fixed now for urxvt (and others?).

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

Nice program smile

May I suggest changing the colorstuff to:

start_color();
use_default_colors();
init_pair(1, COLOR_GREEN, -1);
init_pair(2, COLOR_RED, -1);

to use the terminal default background instead of black smile

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

How about a PKGBUILD?
You can try my PKGBUILD from my github-project. should be pretty much the same smile

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wh/w … t/PKGBUILD

Of course you will need to add your stuff for compiling and remove my dependencies because my project is in perl, but maybe it helps.

All the best!

Yes thats much better. Thanks.

Might be a bit early for that. Would be good to test the program without making changes to code for some time first.

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

Hi defer, nice utility.
Do you plan to make the graph scale with the window size? Something like `nbwmon -l $(( LINES / 2 - 2 ))` is fine, just not quite handy.

I added full height option (-f). I think the fixed height is good default because it may confuse if the graph height is not always the same.

Re: nbwmon - ncurses bandwidth monitor

The [ 0 B/s ] at the bottom is rather useless... To a less extent, the repetition of the max values also bothers me a little.

EDIT: My suggestion is to remove the bottom boxes, and place the numbers on the first line of each of the graphs.

Or instead of the max value, use the current value over the graphs.
