pv

 
Monitor the progress of data through a pipe. More information: https://manned.org/pv.
 
  • Print the contents of the file and display a progress bar:
     
    pv {{file}}
     
  • Measure the speed and amount of data flow between pipes (-s is optional):
     
    command1 | pv -s {{expected_amount_of_data_for_eta}} | command2
     
  • Filter a file, see both progress and amount of output data:
     
    pv -cN in {{big_text_file}} | grep {{pattern}} | pv -cN out > {{filtered_file}}
     
  • Attach to an already running process and see its file reading progress:
     
    pv -d {{PID}}
     
  • Read an erroneous file, skip errors as dd conv=sync,noerror would:
     
    pv -EE {{path/to/faulty_media}} > image.img
     
  • Stop reading after reading specified amount of data, rate limit to 1K/s:
     
    pv -L 1K -S {{maximum_file_size_to_be_read}}
