    If you only want to monitor, you can use iptraf, It's very powerful. – PersianGulf Apr 21 '15 at 19:44

You can use ntop:

ntop - display top network users

Also :

ntop shows the current network usage. It displays a list of hosts that are currently using the network and reports information concerning the (IP and non-IP) traffic generated and received by each host. ntop may operate as a front-end collector (sFlow and/or netFlow plugins) or as a stand-alone collector/display program. A web browser is needed to access the information captured by the ntop program.


I compiled the last nethogs from the github repo and I found that they added UDP too:

nethogs -h

-C : capture TCP and UDP.

just download the master folder from github and do make to test it...

  • Thanks, this made it show traffic more realistically for me. It shows Zoom's traffic though as root unknown UDP. – SaTa Oct 2 '20 at 20:05
  • Excellent. I was wondering whether a certain computer would be getting the UDP heavy load and it does... I can see it reaches 2Mb/s on that port as well. – Alexis Wilke Jan 1 at 23:31
