Hello all.

When you need to monitor your Internet load, netstat (please see
attached screen capture below) is a staple of Puppies, but nethogs



and nload,



although mentioned in the forum here and there, do not come in Puppies
by default.

Those two utilities are quite handy.

From the nethogs manual:
Quote:
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.
(Underlining by me.)

From the nload manual:
Quote:
nload is a console application which monitors network traffic and
bandwidth usage in real time.

It visualizes the in- and outgoing traffic using two graphs and provides
additional info like the total amount of transfered data and min/max
network usage.

So there you go! Both were compiled for Puppy on a Puduan-6.0.
Any feedback welcome.

Another utility that you might want to consider for this purpose is
lsof with the -i -r 2 parameters:
Code:
lsof -i -r 2
although lsof is much broader in scope, it can do many other things.

Those four utilities: netstat, nethogs, nload and lsof -i
should help you make sense of incoming and outgoing Internet traffic.

BFN.

nethogs is really useful to see if any pid you didn't authorized is using network.

Good tool to keep an eye on your connection.
