misc/mbuffer - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Tool for buffering data streams

The mbuffer tool is used to buffer data streams and show the I/O rate
and summary to the user.  It is especially useful for writing backups to
fast tape drives or streaming them over the network.  If used correctly,
it can prevent buffer underruns and speed up the whole backup or
transfer process.
