Is there something like that or a simple way to find out for OS 13.2 available
ready to install and use? I just need simple numbers: how much did I download

One of the features is that measures the network usage: day, week, month.

I also wrote a script that digs this information from network manager and
writes a log. I'll
have to look it up in my laptop later and tell you how I do it, and if it still

Wow, good old gkrellm still alive kicking and?
As I recall it had a remote monitoring feature to monitor a remote gkrellm
installed in another

I have gkrellm on my desktop, but just to view if something happens, and to see the teparatures of the processor and the graphics card (had some problems I could solve with a vacuum cleaner...).

I don't know how to make gkrellm show me the amount of transferred data per time period, the little bit I tried in the settings did not work, but that means nothing. I just see a graphic of the eth0 traffic...

But these also run the risk of monitoring local network traffic, unless it is
on the gateway machine.

If Daniel connects his machine directly to the internet, that wont be an issue.

The computer is with cable on the adsl modem.

If Daniel uses his phone as a wifi-hotspot he might be able to get these
numbers from the phone.
(I mention this because he mentioned a mobile contract was involved).

I want, in future, use a mobile phone to connect the laptop to the internet when I am travelling thru Spain & Portugal. I don't know if this is the most intelligent way to get internet connection when there is no free wifi available somewhere, but I had no idea about how much data I move around and what contract would suit my needs.

Now I konw, thanks to the ifconfig thing that Malcolm told me.

Anyway, I found that the largest amount I can here get is 20G/month (yoigo).
