In the past I used for this:

$ cd /usr/ports/net/trafshow
$ cat pkg-descr 
TrafShow continuously displays the information regarding packet
traffic on the configured network interface that matches the boolean
expression. It periodically sorts and updates this information. It
may be useful for locating suspicious network traffic on the net.
