SUMMARY: network stats

I knew about netstat but it has no reporting capabilities like iostat;
'iostat -xc 2' to see what I mean.  I was looking for thruput statistics
of the kb per time increment variety, not merely packets.

It appears there is no native tool to do this, so ntop it must be.

Thanks to everyone who replied.  All but 2 gave some netstat option
(which did not give me what I was looking for), the other 2 said ntop.
