  Description     : High-Speed Web-based Traffic Analysis and Flow Collection Tool

ntopng is the next generation version of the original ntop, a network
traffic probe that shows the network usage, similar to what the popular
top Unix command does. ntop is based on libpcap and it has been written
in a portable way in order to virtually run on every Unix platform,
MacOSX and on Win32 as well.

ntopng users can use a a web browser to navigate through ntop (that acts
as a web server) traffic information and get a dump of the network
status. In the latter case, ntop can be seen as a simple RMON-like agent
with an embedded web interface. The use of:

- a web interface.
- limited configuration and administration via the web interface.
- reduced CPU and memory usage (they vary according to network size and

What ntopng can do:
- Sort network traffic according to many protocols
- Show network traffic and IPv4/v6 active hosts
- Store on disk persistent traffic statistics in RRD format
- Geolocate hosts
- Discover application protocols by leveraging on nDPI, ntop’s DPI
- Characterise HTTP traffic by leveraging on characterisation services
  provided by block.si. ntopng comes with a demo characterisation key,
  but if you need a permanent one, please mail info@block.si
- Show IP traffic distribution among the various protocols
- Analyse IP traffic and sort it according to the source/destination
- Display IP Traffic Subnet matrix (who’s talking to who?)
- Report IP protocol usage sorted by protocol type
- Act as a NetFlow/sFlow collector for flows generated by routers (e.g.
  Cisco and Juniper) or switches (e.g. Foundry Networks) when used
  together with nProbe
- Produce HTML5/AJAX network traffic statistics
