[Network Monitor Applet] Up and downstream data rate should be displayable in the panel

Bug #219965 reported by over 5000 on 2008-04-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Network Manager Applet
network-manager-applet (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I know there is the netmon applet in the repos, but this
* is not in ubuntu by default
* is old (at least old looking)
* does not do anything else
* looks kind of amateurish in the panel (no icons, text only, weird text like "rx:" and "tx:"...)

And finally, I think this functionality should just be in a complete network monitor.
(Otherwise there's no reason to have it as a panel applet, at all...)

[This is a Feature Request / Wishlist item.]

Yeah, it would be nice to include something like this directly in the network-manager-applet. For example some additional symbols showing if traffic occurs like in this ugly mockup. ;)
Gnome-netstatus-applet is nice, but why have two applets, if this could be unified in one?

so you want flashing/animation on network-traffic or what is this bug about? can you please update the bug title accordingly?
