This is to announce a new PF_RING major release 7.8. The main changes in this release include: The new ice ZC driver supporting E800 Series 100 Gigabit Intel adapters. Hardware timestamp support for packet trailers and keyframes generated by Arista … Continue reading →
This is to announce the release of nDPI 3.4 that is a major step ahead with respect to 3.2: Detection speed has been greatly optimised Many new functions for statistical protocol analysis have been introduced. This is to expand nDPI … Continue reading →
In ntopng you can write plugins to extend it with custom features. This short tutorial explains you how to do that step-by-step. Here we drive you through the creation of a plugin for generating alerts when an unexpected DNS server … Continue reading →
With the introduction of ntopng endpoints and recipients, it is now possible to handle alerts in a flexible fashion by means of recipients. ntopng embeds a SQLite database for turn-key alert storage and reporting. However in large organizations with many … Continue reading →
In the latest ntopng 4.1.x versions (and soon 4.2) we have completely reworked the way alerts are delivered to subscribers. Up to 4.0 the ntopng engine was configured in a single way for all alerts: go to the preferences page … Continue reading →
Most ntop applications (ntopng, nProbe, Cento) and libraries (FT) are based on the concept of flow processing, that merely means keeping track of all network communications. In order to implement this, network packets are decoded and, based on a “key” … Continue reading →
n2disk is an application that many of the ntop community uses to dump traffic up to 100 Gbit. What few people know is that n2disk can index data not just using packet header information (i.e. IP, port. VLAN, MAC…) but … Continue reading →
Save the date! Two webinars have been planned for the cycle of this month. We start on Thursday, September 17th, 16:00 CEST / 10 AM EST, with “How to Write an ntopng Plugin“. In this workshop, we will see how … Continue reading →
Monitoring Industrial IoT and SCADA traffic can be challenging as most open source monitoring tools are designed for Internet protocols. As this is becoming a hot topic with companies automating production lines, we have decided to enhance ntop tools to … Continue reading →
One of the greatest strengths of ntopng is its ability to correlate data originating at different layers and at multiple sources together. For example, ntopng can look at IP packets, Ethernet frames and, at the same time, poll SNMP devices. … Continue reading →
