darkstat is an ntop-workalike network statistics gatherer. It runs as a background process on a cable or DSL router, uses libpcap to capture network traffic, and has a Web interface that serves up reports of statistics such as data transferred by host, port, and protocol. It also has a neat bandwidth usage graph.
Release Notes: Fixes have been made for IPv6 support, HURD, Solaris, and systems without ifaddrs.h. The last seen time is now only updated for the sender. Failure to bind a socket or get the local IP is no longer fatal. darkstat now falls back to gethostbyaddr() if getnameinfo() fails. Decoding on OpenBSD DLT_NULL interfaces (e.g. gif(4)) has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release added support for IPv6, binding to multiple addresses, sorting by last seen time, saving of state without resetting it, and use of relative URLs for easier mod_proxying.
Release Notes: A packet capture problem affecting recent Linux kernels, capture statistics, and crashing on interface down were fixed. Logging to syslog, support for DLT_RAW links, and a hack to help NetworkManager users were implemented.
Release Notes: Improvements have been made to the Web interface, compatibility with MSIE 7, and integration with launchd on Mac OS X.
Release Notes: This release adds more options to limit memory use.
