Ubuntu – Which application can I use for a network traffic monitor

monitornetwork-managertraffic

Is there a way to see ALL the traffic? from which process with the REAL NAME is accessing to which IP with the REAL NAME at which bitrate?

When I say real name I am referring something like this:

midori@mycomputer  >>> h**p://askubuntu.com/questions/291494/gui-tool-for-monitoring-traffic  ~ 4 kbps / 2 kpbs 

I have a home network with two computer, one is sharing its WiFi connection to a public hotspot and a I'm becoming paranoid because I have seen some huge traffic to a LIGHTWARE NETWORK website.

I have tried, iftop, nethogs, jnettop and none of them have been useful or I was unable to get the information that I want.

  • I would recommend using ntop for getting a basic,long term overview of network conversations. You can install this by running the following command:

    sudo apt-get install ntop

    Once installed, go to

    http://localhost:3000/ 
    

    to view the traffic conversations to determine what is talking with your machine.

    If you really want to dive down into the details of your network traffic, Install wireshark.
