Description:

Socket Sentry is a KDE Plasma widget that displays real-time network traffic on your Linux computer. It shows you which processes are communicating with which hosts, current data transfer rates, protocols, and more. Socket Sentry combines the best parts of tools like iftop and netstat in a modern desktop interface that's approachable and easy-to-use.

Features:

* Monitor one or all network devices in each widget
* See over 10 different stats and other characteristics of each connection
* View all connections individually or group by host and process/program
* Sort by any column with secondary sorting by transfer rate
* Quick search box helps you find specific connections
* Optional hostname lookup with configurable subdomain depth
* Customizable filter rules using the pcap expression language
* IPv6 support
* Efficient data sharing across widgets to minimize resource use
* Configurable security for multiuser PCs

It's the right tool to answer all kinds of questions about the software running on your computer. For example:

* How many connections is my download manager using? What's the throughput of each?
* What programs on my computer are phoning home? How often?
* How much bandwidth does my streaming radio service consume if I leave it open?
* What programs are the biggest bandwidth hogs?
* Which video site delivers the best throughput?
* Does my browser keep talking to the web server after the page is loaded?
* My program seems frozen. Is it communicating on the network?
* Is someone connected to my SSH/Samba/FTP/CUPS/Web/Other server right now?
* The network printer won't print. Is the job being sent to it?

For a full rundown of changes including issues fixed, see the CHANGELOG.

Release 0.9.3
=============
* Added package support for Kubuntu 10.04 and openSUSE 11.3.
* Added an option to hide the quick search and freeze sort controls for a more compact display.
* Added the ability to add the widget to the system tray.

Release 0.9.2
=============
* Changed process owner username lookups to be asynchronous with cached results. This reduces network chatter on systems with remote user databases (e.g. LDAP).
* Improved popup handling so the popup window stays open until explicitly dismissed.
* The applet now prompts for a device when the default ("any") pseudo-device is not found.
* Fixed a bug that caused the applet to display an error when IPv6 is disabled.
* Minor improvements to the build process.

Release 0.9.1
=============
First public release.

This plasmoid is simply awesome! I was looking for something like this for some time, and here it is :D

I only miss two features:

1. Possibility to add Socket Sentry to system tray (yes i know that already i can add it to panel, but i prefer it to be in system tray)
2. Which somehow depends on 1. - could the icon of Socket Sentry represent total download and upload? I'm thinking about something similar to Netload theme used in KNemo. Here is a screenshot:

In KDE 4.4 you could move plasmoids from panel into tray directly.

But you cannot do this if plasmoid doesn't support this...

You can, but you must edit your plasma-appletsrc manually.
