ntopmg is a network probe that shows network usage in a way similar to what top does for processes. It acts as a Web server, creating an HTML dump of the network status. It sports a flow collector, an HTTP-based client interface for creating ntop-centric monitoring applications, and RRD for persistently storing traffic statistics. Its C++ core can be scripted in Lua, for changing the appearance and extending functionality.

Release Notes: An enhanced Web GUI with new menus and extension of previous sections. Performance improvements both in nDPI and the ntopng engine. Several enhancements to the flow collection interface. The ability to save flows (both collected and computed from packets) in SQLite format (-F). Data aggregations (-A) for clustering information based on homogeneous information. Implements passive OS detection via nDPI. Adds compatibility with embedded platforms such as RaspberryPi and BeagleBoard. Adds an activity map for having at 1-second visibility of hosts activities.
Release Notes: ntop was completely rewritten from scratch and renamed as ntopng. The engine is now coded in C++ with HTML pages dynamically generated in Lua. This release supports DPI (Deep Packet Inspection), HTTP site characterisation, and flow collection. This new engine should be robust, and memory savvy and suitable for embedding into environments with limited resources. The Web interface is based on HTML5 and Ajax for a modern look-and-feel as well smooth user experience.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release. Legacy code and protocols were removed. Support was added for modern "protocols" such as Facebook and Twitter. Memory usage was reduced. Application stability was increased.
Release Notes: A partially rewritten ntop processing engine to address reliability and performance. Several bugs and stability issues have been fixed. Better support for IPFIX and NetFlow v9, as well as ntop PEN (Private Enterprise Number). Support for Cisco ASA firewalls. ntop engine scriptability via the Python programming language. An RRDalarm plugin for generating alerts based on thresholds. Improved Google maps integration. Enhanced sFlow support. Iphone support. Documentation improvements.
Release Notes: A new rrdAlarm function. Improved Python support. Bugfixes.
