What is vnStat
In short, vnStat is a console-based network traffic monitor that uses the
network interface statistics provided by the kernel as information source.
This means that vnStat won't actually be sniffing any traffic and also
ensures light use of system resources. Optional image output is available
starting from version 1.7.
