I love learning new frameworks, and methodologies, and I absolutely love simple, yet elegant solutions (don't we all?). Since I'm constantly picking up new things, I'm always asking myself how I can use the new knowledge in my current app to make it better, or more user friendly (or even more developer friendly). In my free time I typically am coding, reading tech books or spending time with my beautiful bride. And that's about it. Hope I didn't bore you too much.

comment “df” command making network requests?
Thanks, pabo. Since I first asked the question, I've upgraded to OSX Mavericks 10.9.4, and my md5 hash matches yours. I haven't seen the network usage come back.

Loses all formatting, but it doesn't seem out of ordinary, but I don't check it very often: /dev/disk1 on / (hfs, local, journaled) | devfs on /dev (devfs, local, nobrowse) | map -hosts on /net (autofs, nosuid, automounted, nobrowse) | map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted, nobrowse) | localhost:/YccRhVAyiG6eOtZm9827Hg on /Volumes/MobileBackups (mtmfs, nosuid, read-only, nobrowse)

No mounted network storage. Unless TimeMachine, CrashPlan, etc, were doing something I wasn't aware of. Otherwise I do not use network stores on my local network.

No custom daemons of my own, third-party apps running in the background are always possible, but nothing I could think of that would be doing what it was doing. No browser plugins/extensions--I keep it pretty clean in Chrome.

I looked through the list of running programs at the time I first noticed the issue, and nothing seemed out of place at the time. I have since rebooted, and like I said, the issue seems to have gone away for now (and possibly forever).

comment “df” command making network requests?
As a precaution, and while I'm figuring this out, I renamed "/bin/df" to "/bin/not_df" and restarted my machine. So far it has not come back in the Network Monitor. I will keep investigating as I have time.

And like I said, it "calls out" to these servers once every few seconds. But it's not actively running when I grep through "ps -ax". So something else is calling "/bin/df" and it's sending data from it. That's all I can tell so far. Little Snitch claims that the app is run by root, and is located at "/bin/df".

/bin/df runs as normal, as far as I can tell. I don't use it at all in my day-to-day work, so it was odd to see it listed in the Little Snitch "Network Monitor".
