Xubuntu has a nice way of showing network data flow in the panel; put the Network Monitor in the panel and choose the network interface.

I know that Gnome has a similar feature in its System Monitor - but is there an Xfce equivalent?

Just like Network Monitor, you have System Load Monitor, this can show you the CPU, RAM and swap usage on the Xfce panel, and even the uptime.

Example of the System Load Monitor with his configurations

I didn't notice at first that the indicator itself was at the bottom of that image! Commenting here in case it helps other as inattentive as me :) Also, it's worth noting that this indicator only shows instantaneous values, not temporal graph like gnome's. – waldyrious Oct 15 '14 at 11:54
You might have to install it through sudo apt-get install xfce4-systemload-plugin, as I did on Mint. – Waldir Leoncio May 25 '15 at 14:22
