iftop top interfaces in real time, similarly to the way the Unix top command displays top CPU processes.
This script is a quick hack based on if-counters.pl by Simon Leinen, which is supplied with his SNMP in Perl.

Here is a sample "screenshot" from the command iftop -v2c -P r-peer:
r-peer               interval 10.0s 57 reps

And the usage information:
Usage: iftop [-t secs] [-v (1|2c)] [-c] [-l] [-m max] [-p port] host [community]
       iftop -h

  -h           print this usage message and exit.

  -c           also use Cisco-specific variables (locIfInCrc)

  -P           poll interface unicast packet counters (rather than octets)

  -l           use 64-bit counters (requires SNMPv2 or higher)

  -t secs      specifies the sampling interval.  Defaults to 10 seconds.

  -v version   can be used to select the SNMP version.  The default
   	       is SNMPv1, which is what most devices support.  If your box
   	       supports SNMPv2c, you should enable this by passing "-v 2c"
   	       to the script.  SNMPv2c is much more efficient for walking
   	       tables, which is what this tool does.

  -m max       specifies the maxRepetitions value to use in getBulk requests
               (only relevant for SNMPv2c).

  -m port      can be used to specify a non-standard UDP port of the SNMP
               agent (the default is UDP port 161).

  host         hostname or IP address of a router

  community    SNMP community string to use.  Defaults to "public".
