Try installing the tiny utility "bwm"

Description: BandWidth Monitor
This is a very tiny bandwidth monitor (not X11). Can monitor up to 16
interfaces in the in the same time, and shows totals too.
It's in the universe repository. Just type bwm to run it, ctrl-c to stop it... It outputs a nice little table of your connections etc
