Re: network analyzer

I can't recommend ntop. It's really buggy and really really resource intensive. Besides what he seems to be talking about is active service checks, not network monitoring. So the original poster needs to straighten out what they actually want. Network Analysis or network monitoring or host/service monitoring. Three VERY different things.

Hello all,

I am looking for recommendations for a network analyzer for a 1200 pc,
multiple switches and routers, size network.

Nagios groundworks opensource looks promising.  Mapping and showing
possible problems looks good.

Google searches bring back alot of choices, but I would like real world
experience advice from my fellow Debian users.

No one speaks about ntop !
You have also fprobe + flowscan.
