Thanks! nethogs seems the closest to what I'm looking for. I wasn't aware of it. Wish it would have displayed a PROTO, PORT and process STARTTIME too. This is especially needed for the unknown TCP entries...

See this answer: security.stackexchange.com/questions/438/… it makes a pretty strong case for not using AV at all and suggest stronger alternatives to security. Most of these alternatives are standard on Linux.

Please note that $PPID is not standard in all shells. e.g. in tcsh I get: PPID: Undefined variable.
