      May I know on which Linux distribution you’re trying to install? also have you installed and enabled EPEL repository on the system? if not, follow these commands.

      # yum install epel-release
      # yum install nethogs

    It seems nethogs is not recompiled by epel for RH/Centos 7.
    Any ideas how to do it?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      What do you mean by recompiled? the nethogs packages comes with epel repository all you have to do is:

      # yum install nethogs
