You can read and get archive from here.

Unarchive then use make and make install.

# ls

connection.cpp  decpcap_test      Makefile     README
connection.h    decpcap_test.cpp  nethogs.8    README.decpcap.txt

conninode.h     devices.cpp       nethogs.h    refresh.h
cui.cpp         devices.h         packet.cpp
cui.h           inode2prog.cpp    packet.h
decpcap.c       inode2prog.h      process.cpp
# make
# make install 
install -d -m 755 /usr/local/sbin
install -m 755 nethogs /usr/local/sbin
install -d -m 755 /usr/local/share/man/man8/
install -m 644 nethogs.8 /usr/local/share/man/man8/

After that you have this files:

# ls

connection.cpp  decpcap.h         inode2prog.o  process.cpp

connection.o    decpcap_test      Makefile      process.o
conninode.cpp   decpcap_test.cpp  nethogs       README
conninode.h     DESIGN            nethogs.8     README.decpcap.txt
conninode.o     devices.cpp       nethogs.cpp   refresh.cpp
cui.cpp         devices.h         nethogs.h     refresh.h
cui.h           devices.o         packet.cpp    refresh.o
cui.o           inode2prog.cpp    packet.h

Can you use now binary nethogs to run it.

The binary # ./decpcap_test not working on my system.

I don't know what is the reason.

Testing upload images on google account.

When you upload many images under your google account the time is longer and refresing of upload gui is slow.

You can test your user interface to see how MiB is uploading to google server.

See the next linux command.

$ watch -d 'ifconfig | grep MiB | grep "TX bytes"'

And result is something like this:

Every 2.0s: ifconfig | grep MiB | grep "TX bytes" Thu May  2 22:44:09 2013

          RX bytes:15625675 (14.9 MiB)  TX bytes:184506104 (175.9 MiB)
