A network traffic probe similar to the UNIX top command
ntop is 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 and
on Win32 as well.

ntop users can use a a web browser (e.g. netscape) 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

make ntop easy to use and suitable for monitoring various kind of networks.

ntop should be manually started the first time so that the administrator
password can be selected.
