Nethogs stops showing idle processes after a while. How can I make it keep showing them? I want to have a complete history of processes for long time. Is there any alternative to nethogs?

I don't know of any other program that shows network traffic by process, as nethogs does. I guess your best option would be to edit the nethogs source. Find and increase the constant that determines how long it shows idle processes, then rebuild nethogs.
