...Actually, you will need to be way more specific to get any real help. Info like:

What are you using to see the traffic?

Is the traffic all the time or only at certian intervals?

What kind of traffic is it (tcp/udp, what is the source/destination addresses/ports, etc.)?

What distro and version of Linux are you using?

What is the make/model of the Network Card?

What is the module that you are using for that netowrk card?

What kernel are you booting?
If you need a packet sniffer, use ethereal (install ethereal and gnome-ethereal).
