Monitoring my internet connection



My ISP gives me traffic stats showing what my traffic use looks like from their end. All I see are bytes up and bytes down. 

Between 00:00 - 02:00 every day, not always at exactly the same time,  I see a burst of heavy traffic and I really want to know what it is.  I've got a lot of internet-connected stuff; could try selectively turning things off one at a time but would still rather see exactly what is talking to what address.

Was thinking of Pi-Hole but seems like a lot of being arsed. Anyone got simpler way?

tried pi-hole but I prefer adguard.....just use docker, it's pretty easy to pull an image and create a container....I'm running one on a hacked android tv box running armbian

if you've got a lot of stuff connected you'd be surprised the amount of crap that goes out ie I've got a Samsung Tizen TV and it used to chatter away til I blocked a load o stuff....

your DNS setup is key.....I still don't know who to trust dns wise, I used to think quad9 were ok but apparently they talk to the pigs and other cnuts lol

edit: I'm running latest adguard beta...with their dns servers - i trust the ruskies more than the swiss nowadays :S

docker pull adguard/adguardhome:beta
docker run --name adguardhome    --restart unless-stopped    -v /my/own/workdir:/opt/adguardhome/work    -v /my/own/confdir:/opt/adguardhome/conf    -p 53:53/tcp -p 53:53/udp    -p 67:67/udp -p 68:68/udp    -p 80:80/tcp -p 443:443/tcp -p 443:443/udp -p 3000:3000/tcp    -p 853:853/tcp    -p 784:784/udp -p 853:853/udp -p 8853:8853/udp    -p 5443:5443/tcp -p 5443:5443/udp    -d adguard/adguardhome:beta
