If you are referring to traffic thru AvastSvc.exe, it is simply monitoring traffic that is generated by your browser and other internet programs for malware.  It acts as a local proxy for all internet traffic; it's not generating the traffic itself.

Well, the traffic is only a bridge, from Internet to your computer. It is not generated by avast!, but for your own running programs. avast! is only scanning them.
