ntop-ng (“ntop next generation”)
ntop-ng ("ntop next generation") is the latest iteration of ntop, which is used to probe all network traffic. Some of its features include showing realtimenetwork traffic and hosts; create long term reports for network throughput, application and application protocols; monitor and report live throughput, network and application latencies, RTT, and full TCP stats; discover application protocols (e.g. Facebook, BitTorrent, etc.) by leveraging nDPI (ntop Deep Packet Inspection); characterize HTTP traffic using characterization services provided by Google and HPPT Blacklist; provide geolocation mapping of hosts; sort all network traffic via criteria including IP address, port, L7 protocol, throughput, Autonomous Systems(ASs); analyze IP traffic and sort by source and destination; IPv6 support; full Layer 2 support, including ARP stats; and an alerts engine to capture anomalous and suspicious hosts.
