    When I do

    netstat -A inet

    how often is the data structure it reads updated?

    Also, is there any way to match up processes with how much data they use?
    I'd like to find out which processes are net hogs.

    Nice, that looks like it does what I need. Question: there's a bunch of
    "processes" whose names look like "..23400-" -- what's
    up with that?
