Network and bandwidth monitoring with darkstat

I was searching for a networking monitor solution and found http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20020521011343792

Darkstat's source code is available at http://unix4lyfe.org/darkstat/ After starting it runs as a daemon in the background.
mike@mikembp:~$ sudo darkstat -i en0
It binds itself to the TCP port 667 which can be changed and also other things:
mike@mikembp:~$ darkstat --help
