My network traffic

Hi! Totally off-topic:

My computer keeps sending and receiving small bits of data constantly, even right after boot with no other software running (manually). I’m running Mint 18 Sarah.

I was wondering if someone could shed some light on it? Ease my mind, actually.

Cheers

Is it checking for updates to mint?

I think not, but I don’t know for sure. I don’t know how to check it (yet). But it does check constantly and for a long time (haven’t checked if forever), and I doubt that’s needed for updates. I assume it checks for updates every couple hours or so. Do you know how to find out which service uses the traffic?
