why there is more than 60Gb incoming traffics on my eth0?

Question

when i run

nload -m

, i find there is more than 60Gb incoming traffics on my eth0 , but no outgoing.

i want to know is it a bug of nload or other possible reason ? thanks!

Answer

use tcpdump -n -i eth0 to see what’s coming in.
if it is a long running host on a busy ethernet segment, just broadcasts could accumulate up to such size …
