There always seems to be something downloading to my computer with no network apps running. This happens all the time. How do I find out which process is doing this and stop it?

Can you elaborate a bit more?

dnf meta data? packagekit meta data? each of the two can be significant traffic and both are happening in parallel on a default Fedora system.

You can use bmon and tcptrack and iftop to monitor your connections and traffic. If you don't know any of them, I would start with giving iftop a try...

I just added the two programs you recommended; and hopefully I'll get a chance to use them soon. In the meantime I installed and used Nethogs and got the results shown in on the attachment.


Comments appreciated.
