Monitoring your network with iftop

iftop is a really cool util to monitor your network with and you can get a lot info on a near live basis. Here is one of the uses I have for it when checking on DSL traffic.

iftop -P -i eth0 -f "not host and not host and not net"

which basically will get you all traffic on eth0 except where the source or destination host is not or and the subnet is not (helpful on multihomed servers).
