Why is there network activity in the background?


#1

I’m seeing network activity by Atom in the background. Even when it’s idle. Where is it coming from? Is it downloading updates or something?


#2

If i would guess, yes its updates through APM package manager

Looks like atom-shell updates is located on amazon-servers (see code below)
And other atom packages is located on atom.io server

And there is also the metrics package that sends metrics to google analytics.

@jedthehumanoid noted. just curious because they didn’t prompt us about it like other apps.
