How would I know what processes are responsible for network slowdowns

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Ignoramus15447, Sep 27, 2006.

  1. I have a computer that is an ssh server, webserver, mailserver,
    participates in torrents sometimes etc.

    At certain moments its internet connection slows down to a crawl, I am
    not sure due to what.

    I would like to know if there is some analyzer that would say that
    protocol X is responsible for Y% of packets that went through in the
    last 10 seconds, or some such.

    thanks

    Use http://ethereal.com and capture the packets during such an event, then
    select Statistics -> Destinations -> (null filter) Create Stat.

    Each destination address will display percentages and will have an
    expandable listing of protocols, destination ports and percentages.
