NetHogs is a small 'net top' tool. Instead of breaking the traffic down per packet type or per subnet, like most similar tools do, this groups bandwidth by process, and does not rely on a special kernel module to be loaded. So if there's suddenly a lot of network traffic, you can immediately see which PID is causing this, and, if it's some kind of spinning process, kill it.
