    [SOLVED] Tool to monitor network usage by process?


    I have looked for and found several tools to show a system's total network usage. I have not, however, been able to find any that show this information in the context of individual processes. Do any such tools for linux exist?

    NetHogs: nethogs.sourceforge.net

    It's in Debian's APT repositories, I assume others as well but I don't know.

    nTop will do it too now that I think about it, but NetHogs will do it faster and easier.

    Nethogs definitely looks like the better solution for watching onboard bandwidth use on a server. ntop would be overkill, is built to monitor an entire network using SNMP to track interface usage on the routers/switches.
