Action pipe throughput in the covering
There is a covering command that permits you to gauge just how rapid the information experiences it, so you can gauge the rate of result of commands in a pipe. So as opposed to:
$ somecommand | anothercommand
you can do something like:
$ somecommand | ??? | anothercommand
And also throughput statistics (bytes/sec) are published to stderr, I assume. Yet I can not for the life of me remember what that command was.
