This package can monitor the statistics of network interfaces.

It can check the available network interfaces in the current computer running under a Linux-based operating system.

The package can also retrieve statistics about a given network interface using the vnstat program or checking system virtual files containing values of several types of statistics of the traffic that goes through the specified network interface, like the number of transmitted bytes.
