pipebench description
Pipebench shows the current throughput and amount of data going through a pipe. It can be used to show the progress of a large md5sum process: cat bigfile | pipebench | md5sum.

Pipebench measures the speed of a pipe, by sitting in the middle passing the data along to the next process. Works on at least Linux, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Solaris and x86, Alpha, HPPA, Sparc and Sparc64.


Just type 'make' to compile.

Type 'make install' to have pipebench be installed in /usr/local/bin. .
