Using ntop, iftop and apachetop to Monitor Traffic on Ubuntu

Not monitoring your server's network traffic is the equivalent of driving a car with your eyes closed. You must at all times be aware of your server's traffic. Just checking the logs is simply not enough. The tools that I will show you today generate traffic statistics, and show traffic usage in realtime. Statistics that would be hard for you to obtain otherwise. For a secure server, using such tools is mandatory.

Ntop

Ntop is a top-like application with a web frontend, designed to monitor network activity and generate reports on the console or via your web browser.

Installing Ntop on Ubuntu 8.04.1 Server

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
