Plugins and User ScriptsΒΆ

End users can extend the ntopng functionalities by creating plugins which allow them, for example, to trigger custom alerts or provide new data visualizations in ntopng.

Plugins can contain different resources, for example localization files, custom pages and alert definitions. The User Scripts are one particular resource which allow the user to implement a custom logic in response to an event (such events are called Hooks in ntopng).
