@ddkroyal001 You can use iftop -i INTERFACE to monitor what connections are going out and coming in to your system. I'm not that familiar with monitoring yet but I've used it a few times and you can also use nethogs INTERFACE to monitor what programs have network access. iptraf-ng is also promising.
