Network traffic monitoring tool that gather backend data into a database, currently supported backends are bandwhich and nethogs.
While programmes like nethogs and bandwhich are excellent for tracking network bandwidth, I wanted something that could save data persistently so that I could verify it later. As a result, turtle was developed. I can later check the logs by simply looking into a database.
If you already have go installed:
go install github.com/omarahm3/turtle@latest
Or from releases page
Since turtle is using nethogs & bandwhich which requires sudo access to collect network traffic data, turtle must be running with sudo so that it can spawn backend processes properly.
