Binary package “ntop” in ubuntu precise

display network usage in web browser

 ntop is a network traffic probe that shows the network usage, similar to what
 the popular top Unix command does. ntop is based on libpcap and it has been
 written in a portable way in order to virtually run on every Unix platform and
 on Win32 as well.
 .
 ntop users can use a web browser to navigate through ntop (that acts as a
 web server) traffic information and get a dump of the network status. In the
 latter case, ntop can be seen as a simple RMON-like agent with an embedded web
 interface.
 The use of:
  * a web interface
  * limited configuration and administration via the web interface
  * reduced CPU and memory usage (they vary according to network size
  and traffic)
 make ntop easy to use and suitable for monitoring various kind of networks.
 .
 This package contains the ntop daemon.
