The Useful Traffic Accounting Dragon is a traffic accounting tool that actually gives useful information about traffic instead of just counting incoming/outgoing packets. It accounts for traffic by user, program, and timestamp.
|Operating Systems||POSIX Linux|
Release Notes: A kernel patch for Linux 188.8.131.52 was added. Improvements were made to the Web interface and several bugs in the traffic collector were fixed.
Release Notes: Minor enhancements to the Web frontend. Now accounts all traffic, not just TCP and UDP. A problem where the delay loop was sometimes broken and dragon ran continuously has been fixed.
Release Notes: An ignore_hosts configuration was added to remove specific IP addresses from the accounting. A bug that caused traffic to be accounted multiple times was fixed by restructuring the whole packet counting process. This restructuring also makes conflicts with other programs using iptables less likely to occur.
Release Notes: A pretty stupid mistake was fixed which caused all traffic to be accounted on one IP address, regardless of where it came from (loopback, ppp, eth, whatever). The use of a config file for the data collector was added. Small changes were made to the Web frontend.
Release Notes: A caching mechanism is now available for the data, resulting in a massive speed increase. The Web frontend now also has graphs.
