#####requirements:
- [nethogs (0.8.2 +)](https://github.com/raboof/nethogs) make sure its available in your path.
- python 2.7

#####Install
- `pip install hogwatch`

#####Running
As hogwatch runs a light web server. you can view using either
1. Open window: `sudo hogwatch` sudo is needed for nethogs. Its a bad idea to run the whole process as root. need to fix this.
2. Web browser: `sudo hogwatch server` view at `localhost:6432` default port. for custom port specify port eg`sudo hogwatch server 8010`. You can see this output from other devices on the network by specifying `ip` in place of localhost.

3. Menubar: currently just for testing. got to menubar folder for instructions
