php command line bandwidth monitor

Tag: phperm @ 10:55 am

I wrote this quick & dirty bandwidth monitor for use with htop. It also displays the average bandwidth for the last 10 seconds.

It displays a line similar to this at the top of the screen:
eth0:RX:600b TX:944b Avg:77b eth2:RX:0b TX:0b Avg:0b

Usage is simple:
$ ./bw.monitor.php & htop

#!/usr/bin/php
<?php
    set_time_limit(0);
    define('ESC',chr(27));
    $ignore_interfaces = array('lo','wlan0');
    function human($bytes, $decimals = 1) {
      $sz = 'bkmgtp';
      $factor = floor((strlen($bytes) - 1) / 3);
      if ($factor >= 1) {
        return sprintf("%.{$decimals}f%s", $bytes / pow(1024, $factor), @$sz[$factor]);
      }
      return sprintf("%d%s", $bytes / pow(1024, $factor),@$sz[$factor]);
    }
