Runs only in landscape mode terminal.

An (ugly) icon is made for quick launching.

A very dirty hack (commenting out line 496 in cui.cpp) is made to make it work with android apps :P


NetHogs is a small 'net top' tool. Instead of breaking the traffic down per protocol or per subnet, like most tools do, it groups bandwidth by process. NetHogs does not rely on a special kernel module to be loaded. If there's suddenly a lot of network traffic, you can fire up NetHogs and immediately see which PID is causing this. This makes it easy to indentify programs that have gone wild and are suddenly taking up your bandwidth.

Since NetHogs heavily relies on /proc, it currently runs on Linux only.


Application versions: 

- Set SUID to the nethogs binary

- An icon is added to the launcher
