Gentoo port of the week: Nethogs

Written by Solène, on 17 October 2017.

Today I will present you a nice port (from Gentoo this time, not from a FreeBSD) and this port is even linux only.

nethogs is a console program which shows the bandwidth usage of each running application consuming network. This can be particulary helpful to find which application is sending traffic and at which rate.

It can be installed with emerge as simple as emerge -av net-analyzer/nethogs.

It is very simple of use, just type nethogs in a terminal (as root). There are some parameters and it’s a bit interactive but I recommend reading the manual if you need some details about them.

I am currently running Gentoo on my main workstation, that makes me discover new things so maybe I will write more regularly about gentoo ports.
