I'm using the command sudo nethogs to watch network traffic. I have a problem in that the name of the program is too long (it doesn't fit in the PROGRAM column).

I haven't found any nethogs configuration switch dealing with this issue. Do you know how to see the whole name of the process?

I don't think nethogs offers a feature like that, but you can use the process id it shows in the first column to look up the information.

cat /proc/$PID/cmdline

or

ps -p $PID -o 'args='

should both work on Linux, for example.
