A top for your network? Nethogs!

A quick tip for linux guys: when you see some network activity (system monitor always visible because you’re a pro ;)) that you cannot explain the correct tool is: nethogs! It shows the network traffic grouped by process (it’s the “net top”) and you can see what to kill.

A side note: I stepped into nethogs because the stupid whoopsie (Ubuntu crash report program) was uploading data even if I said to avoid it. It had to purge it… give me a break, man!
