Network usage monitor using vnstat

The desklet is based on Network usage monitor applet from clem.

How it does it:

The vnstat daemon runs in the background and collects info about your Internet usage.

The applet detect which device youre currently using, and simply export a graph using vnstati.

What you need for it to work:

You need:

  • To install vnstat
  • To install vnstati
  • To have the vnstat daemon running

Note: In Linux Mint, you can simply run apt install vnstati and that will take care of everything. In other distributions it might depend on the way things are packaged but its likely to be similar.

Many thanks. Your desklet works great. Are there any configuration files behind the scenes that would allow me to add additional network usage data to the desklet ?
