Ok, so I've downloaded iftop, and looked at ntop's web site, and I can't 
figure out any way to look at actual processes--is there any way to do 
this with any of the four network monitoring tools you listed? (Or any 
other tool for that matter.) They all seem to just track connections (so 
you can see which *host* is taking up the most bandwidth, but for example 
you can't see how much bandwidth gtk-gnutella is taking up with its sixty 
different connections, or apache with its two hundred connections).
