Do you want it to monitor in a specific interface or just the one being used by you? – Alex Aug 9 '13 at 1:47
Hi Alex, I need to monitor for broadband usage for a specific time. Any software is available for ubuntu? – Nachiappan R Aug 18 '13 at 1:50

There is a command line program iptraf for this purpose. It has great user interface. I'm sure that you would love it.

And, here are some more bandwidth monitoring tools bmon bwbar bwm bwm-ng and iftop

I am also looking for one too. I saw something called ntm but I am not sure i trust it. Gnome system monitor seems to be the only stock thing I can find. iptraf seems weird
