nethogs - Net top tool grouping bandwidth per process
NetHogs is a small 'net top' tool. Instead of breaking the traffic down per
protocol or per subnet, like most such tools do, it groups bandwidth by
process - and does not rely on a special kernel module to be loaded. So if
there's suddenly a lot of network traffic, you can fire up NetHogs and
immediately see which PID is causing this, and if it's some kind of spinning
process, kill it.
- display available commands usage.
- prints Version info.
- delay for refresh rate.
- select view mode
- sniff in promiscious mode (not recommended).
- limit number of refreshes
- sort by traffic sent
to monitor. By default eth0 is being used.
- cycle between display modes (kb/s, kb, b, mb)
- sort by 'received'
- sort by 'sent'
