This a simple POSIX compliant shell script that shows the current download and upload bandwidth of a network interface on Linux. It relies on
ip to get RX and TX bytes instead of reading
/proc/net/dev so that the script can run on Android without root privileges.
Downloading and running instructions:
# cd into the directory you want the script to be downloaded in and then run: curl -Os 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Aptrug/linux_netspeed/master/linux_netspeed.sh' # In order to run the script, it has to be executable, for that you have to run: chmod +x ./linux_netspeed.sh # You can now run the script. Pressing CTRL-C will stop it. ./linux_netspeed.sh
