Posted · Add Comment

This is to announce the release of ntopng 1.1. The main changes with respect to 1.0 include:

  • Enhanced web GUI with new menus and extension of previous sections.
  • Ability to specify multiple interfaces simulatenously (just repeat -i).
  • Performance improvements both in nDPI and the ntopng engine (yes multi-Gbit traffic analysis is possible).
  • Several enhancements to the flow collection interface (note that you need the very latest nProbe) that is not much faster and written in native C++ code.
  • Added Google Maps support and HTML 5 map geolocation support.
  • Ability to save flows (both collected and computed from packets) in SQLite format (-F).
  • Introduced data aggregations (-A) for clustering information based on homogeneous information (e.g. HTTP servers contacted or DNS hosts resolved).
  • Implemented passive OS detection by dissecting, via nDPI, HTTP request headers.
  • Added compatibility with embedded platforms such as RaspberryPi and BeagleBoard.
  • Added several new reports.
  • All report counters have not an activity icon.
  • Added icons in menu headers and HTML pages.
  • Extended host reporting information with new reports and enhancements to existing ones.
  • Fixed various interface and engine bugs.
  • Reduced memory usage.
  • Added activity map for having at 1-second visibility of hosts activities.

In the next release we will focus on various areas including (but not limited to):

  • Ability to deploy ntopng based sensors across the Internet while accessing them from a single GUI (read it as: create a centralized monitoring console based on a plethora of distributed ntopng monitoring instances).
  • Cloud support for remote data storage.
  • Custom reports for selected protocols such as VoIP and HTTP for providing detailed activity reports.
  • New graphical reports for depicting data that is currently not yet/properly displayed.
  • Ability to visualize stored/historical flows already saved by ntopng.
  • Comparison of hosts activities to spot similarities and non-standard behavior.
