View Full Version : [lubuntu] Sending Data constantly

I have turned on the Systems Monitor. I have discovered that my computer is sending a constant stream of data to the router. This is occurring even when I don't think I have any programs sending to the Internet.

How do I find out what the source of this is and how do I stop it?

Through a variety of tools


Find out whats running on your machine use the process command
ps (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/intrepid/man1/ps.1.html)

eg
ps -A

View currently running process using the top (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man1/top.1.html) command.

You could also use netstat (http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man8/netstat.8.html) to see what connections are being from your machine to external devices

If you want to go hardcore You could run tcpdump


tcpdump -v -i any
and look at the actual packets

All of this will be done in a terminal window,
You do need to know what your looking for and when you find a process or port your not familiar with, you can research that and find out what its doing.


The machine will always be sending packets here or there for some reason or other, but checking the above will ensure no problems

Is one of these processes causing my problem?

in terminal the top command will show which process is using the most memory and the command iftop will show if there are any active connections and the data they are sending. I think top is installed by default but I think youll have to install iftop.

top is on there already,
nothing unusual in ps,
check the other commands I gave you including top.

nestat will show you connections made to remote machines,
you should be able to see if whats going on is normal or not

Here is a dump from netstat ... something is running wild, but I don't have the expertise to know what it is.

What is the output of this command?:



ps -o cmd= -p $(lsof -i -n -P | sed 1d | awk '{print $2}' | uniq) | awk '{print $1}' && ps -o cmd= -p $(lsof -i -n -P | sed 1d | awk '{print $2}' | uniq) | awk '{print $2}'


Also please use code tags. It makes it easier to read your output.

Looks like you have a few things sending data (or just waiting with an established connection(which will send a little data)) like ubuntuone and chromium. I am assuming chromium is so you can post here to the forums though. Also, from your previous output there is I am guessing an appletv on your network? May be a network service running connecting to it like network discovery (avahi or similar). Try disabling ubuntuone and any additional network services you don't need / use and see if that helps.

Anything that says "established" is a connection from your device to another target

So, even when you think there is nothing going on there, there are active connections
As dodo3773 said Appletv is an obvious one, but there is one to your airport also ( Victors-AirPort-Ex:)
These things are most likely always open, passing packets and generally nothing to worry about.
In-the-basement.lo also seems like another active connection , but the port 5000 is nothing I recognize, mind you I did see a post saying Yahoo messenger, but again, I dont think its tied to that.


@/tmp/dbus- and lots of it, seems to be another interesting thing, but doing a bit of research i notice This (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38656) post which is for solaris but mentions

it always leaves /tmp/dbus-XXX socket files. Each time a user logs in it leaves one socket file for the "gdm" user and another for the user who just logged out.

This is likely not an issue for Linux since abstract sockets are used in that environment. However, it seems nicer to make D-Bus properly clean things up on shutdown like this.

So again, Im not really sure there is something to be worried about here from your netstat connections.
There maybe something that is happening at other times that is causing huge traffic.
A good example would be network HP printers,
I mention this as I saw this myself.
Thing was always broadcasting and shouting, but again, its jsut the way that product worked.

Well this is becoming more interesting all the time. I have had my suspicions that this is some how tied into rhythmbox. So I deleted all of the plugins that I could find. This did not fix the problem. However, when I went into the sound settings I discovered that my 2 Airport Expresses and my Apple TV on the network are considered to be output devices.

I have no idea how this happened. How would you suggest that I remove these as sound output devices?

Ok,

Im not a sound or Appletv expert.

All I know is when I try to play songs on my TV from my iphone using Airplay, it wont work unless I have itunes open.

When I saw how that worked, I figured that the Iphone is not playing songs on the TV but streaming to the TV from Itunes.
Wouldnt that be an output device in that case?

Again, totally outside my wheelhouse now

I did figure out how to do this and .....


my problem went away.

Thank you for your help.
