lf network manager app

Post by niubboxp » Fri Jan 27, 2017 1:38 pm

i'm looking for a noob friendly program which allow me to see what process/programs do network activity, and hold the log

i'd like to know which programs/process have the network access (if is possible splitted data between lan and wan) and how many data they down/up

does exist a program like that?

thank you

Hi niubboxp,

In this case the terminal/commad line is your friend :)
Take a look at this page which give several terminal commads and a few programs that can help you track network activity.

Yea, I get a 'Registration is unavailable' message from them.

You could use 'netstat', a command line utility that should be installed by default, if not it should be in the repos.
Example using netstat, watch -d -n0 "netstat -a | grep ESTA" will give an updating list of all established connections.
EDIT: 'ctrl-c' to quit.

See BinaryTides.com for more info.

this is an interesting command thanks, the only "problem" is don't tell me wich apps are enstabilishing the connection, there is a way to see the application name and also generate a file log where i can see which app enstabilish a connection?
for example
2017-1-28 firefox sended 50mb received 400mb (wan)
2017-1-28 transmission sended 5mb received 200mb (wan)
2017-1-28 cups sended 1mb received 1mb (lan)

something like that of course if more info should be avalaible should be nice

You can add the -p option to the above example watch -d -n0 "netstat -ap | grep ESTA" (Get process name/pid and user id) for user only. But you would probably want to sudo it sudo watch -d -n0 "netstat -ap | grep ESTA" to show all processes.
Not sure about the logging though.

EDIT: added '-e' option to both commands to show user.

You can unwrap the 'watch' command to get a one-shot display sudo netstat -ape | grep ESTA to get 'established' connections or sudo netstat -ape | grep LIST for 'listening'.
