Description Christian Mandery 2005-05-21 14:47:07 UTC
ncmatrix is a new tool (just released a few hours ago, 21th May 05) to 
visualize traffic on a given network interface. 
The author writes: 
"NCMatrix is a modified version of the CMatrix screen saver by Chris 
Allegretta with the added functionality of network traffic monitoring. As 
network activity changes, different colored characters will be displayed at 
random locations in the streams. Depending on the size of the packet, the 
length of the character stream will change as well. The screenshot (Red 
characters are upstream packets, magenta characters show downsteam packets) on 
the right shows NCMatrix in action while downloading the linux 2.6 kernel. In 
the dox for CMatrix, Chris notes his concerns about CPU load with CMatrix, but 
running this on a P266 linux router/firewall I only see a 17 percent cpu load 
during average load."

No activity in one year. If you are still interested in this, attach an ebuild. There are over 2000 bugs filed for new ebuilds, if you want something in portage, at least attempt an ebuild.
