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, Jarland
