Methods, apparatus, systems, and articles of manufacture directed to the monitoring and visualizing of network traffic are disclosed. The network monitoring can include tracking data packets on a per process basis. As a data packet traverses a communications interface, it can be correlated with the process responsible for that data packet and a local process address can be logged providing a record of the packet and an associated source, destination, and process identifier. The visualizing can include generating a visual representation of network traffic and packet-process correlations.
