    1) Use iftop [http://iftop.darwinports.com/] to find out which hosts / ports are the source of the bulk of the traffic.

    2) Then use lsof to figure out which process is receiving on that local port number.

    [if anyone knows a way to do this without installing and using iftop, I'd love to know...]
