In Debian Linux, I use any of pppstats -w 1
xnetload ppp0 #showing input/output packets in a graph
iptraf #run as root, giving bytes/sec, detailed
IP addresses communicating****
pppload #qt based, giving 512 bits/line graph, total
mrtg #I've seen this mentioned but generally
requires someone run SNMP
#It's next version is supposed to
be easier to configure (too much for me now)
xisp #if you use this to connect, I hear it
gives some statistics
