Is there a show command to display traffic throughput/volume in bits/bytes in 30-sec/5-min load intervals on Cumulus switches?

I was looking for a simple "sh int" command that has what I am looking for but I have not been able to find one...

Not really @noster. You can try `ip -s link show`, as this will give you packets and bytes. But it does not provide the rate. To get the rate you'll have to calculate by polling statistics regularly.

We're looking to improve `net show counters` to display rate, but that hasn't been developed as of yet.
