Can we have an exact alternative (for macOS) to the output for /proc/net/dev on Linux systems?

There's a slightly similar question at OS X equivalent of linux /proc dir but I'm looking specifically for /proc/net/dev.

I am trying to run speedometer which is a python script that displays network usage history graphically. For example, in Ubuntu, I can run it in three terminals and it shows the per second, per minute, and per hour average network speed for a given interface. Maybe I can try another tool for the job?

speedometer is failing when it requests for the output of /proc/net/dev

    This will get yes / no answers. If you want more than that, consider explaining what exactly you are trying to do other than ask if X is ported to Y.
