I installed natty (11.04) and wanted to play a video. Went through the process the cancelled because it was slow and files were relatively large unstable and it was late .(Internet very expensive for me). I copied the links to download later.
i closed mplayer and went on surfing in Firefox. Surfing was not working properly. And i got an error using traceroute(something about a buffer).
In system monitor i noticed my connection was going at nearly its max speed (17KBps)
I checked netstat but i didn't show any thing that indicated which application was downloading.
Killed all open apps. Didn’t fix
I opened the software manager and it told me that another app was using apt. I didn’t find anyway to kill it so i had to restart.(My uptime is usually around a month) Problem fixed on restart.#
What is the root cause of this issue?
Is there any app that can tell me what application is downloading what? Sorta like system monitor on windows or some firewalls on windows
Any per process firewalls for Linux like the type I’m using on windows (Comodo); Doesn’t have to be open source.
