When my notebook boots, it seems to take a long time. I've notice the CPU use is pegged at 100% for quite a long time, and there seems to be a lot of activity on the Ethernet connection. I tried googling monitoring Ethernet traffic. It quickly became apparent to me that there are numerous programs to do this, but the wealth of information was overwhelming.
What simple to use, ideally free program can I use to monitor what is going through my Ethernet connection?
