Having run into a similar problem I have also searched for a tool that
can keep running totals of traffic caused/consumed on a per-process
basis, but couldn't find anything satisfactory. The closest I've seen is
nethogs. It's perfect except that it deletes "older" entries. Do you
maybe know of any such apps?
Also, Bill, I used to get a few brute force/dictionary attacks against
my SSH server every day, each running for a few hours. I don't know how
much bandwidth this could waste, but since installing fail2ban that
problem is eliminated too. But as stated previously in this thread I
would also suspect updates first.
: `sudo aptitude install nethogs`
