EtherApe is a graphical network monitor modeled after etherman. it displays network activity graphically, showing active hosts as circles of varying size, and traffic among them as lines of varying width.

It features link layer, ip and TCP modes, color-color coded protocols display, Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ISDN, PPP and SLIP devices. It can filter traffic to be shown, and can read traffic from a file as well as live from the network.

Didn't seem to work on Linux Mint 19.2, I saw that a process was running, but no window, no information, no good :(

For a home computer user like myself. EtherApe display is both entertaining and informative. Gives a nice show when you run it along with a high traffic bit torrent program. Screen fills with a couple hundred addresses with all seeds and peers displayed. You can view the graphics to see how your upload signal is sent to several peers simultaneously through a bit torrent program. Have EtherApe installed on my home server. Display monitor is up in corner of office. Simply cool to see how your computer is connected to the world. I don't leave it runing since it pings continuously. But it has a stop start button. So I leave it up then just hit start when I wish to view traffic on my home Internet server. Titillating visual for the easily entertained. Like me. There would be utility for a person whom works for a living also.
