Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

From time to time connection to my server is very slow. This could be that someone is doing large uploads or downloads. Since I have a lot of software on my server I would like to find out, which process is responsible for the traffic.

Is there a simple command which lists processes which are currently doing network communication, sorted by the amout of traffic that was created in the last x seconds?

My system is running Ubuntu.
