    What I’m really after is an app with a GUI that will break down traffic by application and ideally to provide an option to throttle certain bandwidth greedy applications.

    Anyone know of such an application or one that is in development?

    Thanks rbhkamal, that’s nethogs is a great little app.

    I’m now using it in conjunction with another app called trickle to throttle the bandwidth hogging programs on my system.

    Nice tool, thanks for sharing.

    Nevertheless, I need something slightly different. I need a network monitor that tells (in real time, no need for logging, though it wouldn’t hurt) which applications are using the network. Any ideas?
