NTOP is back!!

December 4th, 2008 by Scott Ullrich

I just reinstated the NTOP package for 1.2.1 and 2.0!!

If you were waiting on this package before deploying 1.2.1 your wait is now over.  Enjoy!  :)

    Sweet! Thanks for bringing it back!

    Be warned, if you install this, watch your CPU utilization. Apparently it works fine for some, but a lot of the time you’ll see threading bugs that cause it to peg at 100% CPU usage. I don’t believe this is a problem when it’s solely acting as a Netflow collector, so long term I’d like to see the package disable the listening on local interfaces and strictly collect Netflow and display the same data in that fashion.

  3. Scott Ullrich Says:

    I have not seen it use more than 15% utilization with the net flow connector enabled. It seems to behave a lot better on FreeBSD 7 based builds.

    How do you install this package? I don’t see it on the list.

  5. Chris Buechler Says:

    It’s for 1.2.1 only.

    Thanks, those problems should now be resolved. Deinstall NTOP and reinstall about 15 minutes after this posting (files need to sync).
