If you're on a Mac I know there is an app called little sniffer or something like that that identifies local application's network usage. On Linux there are a number of tools like jnettop, ntop (mentioned above), iptables , and others to help diagnose where traffic is coming from or going to. 

I tend to use 'iftop' (http://www.ex-parrot.com/pdw/iftop/) for monitoring
what traffic is going where and how much bandwidth it is using.
