Hey there,

There are different ways of going about this, but I really like iftop for this purpose. I was able to locate a great guide on how to install it:

In the sample output screenshot you can see that it shows you which other systems you are communicating with, and it sorts them by the highest rate of traffic.

Kind Regards,
