Network Widget

The network widget provides a visual representation of network input and output per second, as well as noting the total amount received and transmitted.

The legend displays the current reads and writes per second in bits, as well as the total amount read/written.

The y-axis automatically scales based on shown read/write values, and by default, is a linear scale based on base-10 units (e.x. kilobit, gigabit, etc.). Through configuration, the read/write per second unit can be changed to bytes, while the y-axis can be changed to a log scale and/or use base-2 units (e.x. kibibit, gibibit, etc.).

One can also adjust the displayed time range through either the keyboard or mouse, with a range of 30s to 600s.
