If you want to figure out where all your bandwidth is getting used, without bothering with Networking, protocols and IP addresses try Etherape.
Etherape provides an easy to understand graph of all your network traffic in real time. This is how it works.
- It shows all your IPs/computers on your network.
- The more the traffic the thicker the connection gets between the IPs.
- It uses colour codes to denote the type of traffic on your network.
You can change to different network interfaces from capture interfaces. For best results run this on your internet gateway.
