I don't know what GUI you're talking about, but the raw data is in
the kernel, naturally. According to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1126790/how-to-get-network-adapter-stats-in-linux-mac-osx
you can get it from sysctl, but it doesn't appear you can get it
directly from sysctl on the cli. The netstat command also outputs this
stuff if you use the -i flag.
