    Top bandwidth consumers


    How to find out pid's and speed of top x processes that consume most network bandwidth? I tried to fetch data from nethogs, so i redirected the output to some file, but the output was messy with some weird characters and i wasn't able to grep that file. What I want is to fetch those data and write them into some file that would have 4 columns: PID,name of process(command),down speed and up speed.

    How did you redirect the output? Did you do something like:
    Code:
    # touch foo.txt
    # nethogs wlan0 >> foo.txt
    Because that's the easiest method I can think of, and the output shouldn't be too hard to read.

    Also, why were you trying to redirect the output of nethogs in the first place? Why not just view it on the command line?
