Easily monitor current network traffic with nload tool in your Ubuntu (or Debian) machine

I recently needed some good utility for monitoring current traffic (throughput) on my Ubuntu and Debian machine so after thorough research I found out that the best is nload.

Installation is easy:

1) apt-get install nload

2) nload

3) use arrow keys to switch interface (you would likely want to navigate to eth0)

See below for a screenshot:
