I had to download multiple files using wget over a SSH Server, so I pasted the links in a file named 'link'.

I used this command to download the files in background even after disconnecting from the server:

wget -bqc -i link

It gave output as:

Continuing in background, pid 1353.

Now how do I check the download progress of the files, as the process is running in background..


You can run it with -o option and check the log for the progress:

wget -o log http://file
