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?

Visit the http://code.google.com/p/socket-sentry for more details and screenshots.




Changelog:

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.

Hi,

It compiles OK but when I try to add it to the Desktop I get

"The Object counld not be created for the following reason:
Could not find requested component: socketsentry"

socksent-client on the commandline appears to work OK.
This is for Fedora 12 KDE 4.4.1.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Judging by the error, there seems to be an incompatibility between the version of KDE/Plasma you built against and the version you're trying to run it under. (Maybe the build version is newer?) It's been tested successfully on KDE 4.4.1 under Kubuntu. You might try posting on the forum (link at top) to see if other Fedora users share this problem. (I have not heard anyone else say so.)

Sorry, to interfer. I am maintaining a fedora repository and also packages this plasmoid. Maybe you want to check: http://www.floriansievert.de/linux/fedora/12/phobos/repoview/kde-plasma-socketsentry.html

Please note that these packages are only tested briefly. i686 is completly untested. However on my machine this plasmoid is working quite fine. (KDE 4.4.1).

Hi Phobeus,

Thanks for those RPMs, the i686 version appears to work perfectly. Hope this gets into the main repositories soon.

Thanks again,

 Adding filters

 
 by Phobeus on: Apr 3 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi,
it should be easy to implement and makes this plasmoid even more useful: The user should be able to add filter on programs that should not be enlisted in the view. For example, if one process is having lots of connections, but you are not interested in its connecton, you have an unreadable long list. Adding several filters would be a great benefit, I think :)

Hi Phobeus. One or two others have also asked for the ability to filter by program. I've added an enhancement request that you can track here: http://code.google.com/p/socket-sentry/issues/detail?id=8

Note that you already have the ability in the current release to "collapse" multiple connections into one row in the Local Settings dialog. You can show just one row per program and host, for example. Also, if you want to exclude connections to certain ports or hosts, you can do that by adding a custom filter in the Global Settings dialog. But yes, filtering by program would be nice, too.

You mean the option "Host pair and program"? This option is already activated, but does not solve the problem here. Fedora is currently in pre-beta phase and ktorrent is running to share its images. So I have lots of ktorrent entried listed there, I guess this is because the other host is always different. However glad to see its in the bug tracker.

Its already a great tool... finally I know how much traffic amarok is actually causing when listing to internet radio ;D

Hi Krog. Sorry, you ran into this. This is a known bug in v0.9.1 and is already fixed in the latest code. You can grab a copy from http://code.google.com/p/socket-sentry/source/checkout or wait until v0.9.2 comes out, which should happen this week. The bug occurs when IPv6 is disabled on the host.

PopUp not staying as described in changelog

Removed and re-added plasmoid but did not restart kde or computer - is this required for it to work?

If you're upgrading, you will need to restart Plasma to activate the new version of the widget. You can do this by logging out and logging back in.

removing the existing one, then adding the new one (9.2) did not help - why? Is this a plasmoid issue?

But restarting KDE did.

thanks,

This is the case with all Plasmoids AFAIK. Once a widget's library has been loaded once in the current session, you need to restart Plasma in order for changes to it to take effect. (It's not usually necessary to restart all of KDE, though.)

Or, more likely, this is the case with all compiled Plasmoids. Script-based ones might not require a Plasma restart.

Hi roignac. Please note that the existing project repository works with Lucid, too. Instructions at http://code.google.com/p/socket-sentry/wiki/GetSoftware have details.

A separate Lucid repository is coming soon, although the only difference will be in the "branding". All code and dependencies are unchanged from Karmic. Thanks.

Cool! Let the package in PPA be a temporary replacement for official repository.
Don't forget to add the link to official repo when it's done.

Great plasmoid. I was looking for something like that.

Just a couple of suggestions:
1. Make the list use the theme's transparent background, optionally.
2. Add columns for total downloaded and uploaded data.

Thanks mate. Keep up the great work you are doing!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
