I can get a good disk IO utilization percentage using iostat

and a good CPU utilization percentage using vmstat

Is there a way to get a network utilization percentage ?
netstat and others do not seem to be aware of the capacity of the network card and are unable to perform a percentage

I can get a network percentage in Windows using the Task manager

Is there a way to get a network utilization percentage in Linux by a command or a function that uses the command ?

Thanks
