I am running Ubuntu server 9.10 and I am trying to find a way to cumulate and visualized bandwidth for all the ips on my network.
I created a server connected to a mirror port of my router and I am running snort and nessus and ntop to monitor and scan my network for security. Everything is running fine and I can see all the traffic happening, ntop creates really nice report of what is going on in the network, snort with base alert me of probable security problem and nessus help me secure the network with weekly scans.
What else do I need ? I really simply need a software that will calculate the total bandwith usage per ip address. Ntop seems to gather all that information somewhere, but there is not simple way to get the information out of it. I was thinking maybe cacti would be the software to use but I am not too familiar with Cacti and it's interface seems a bit daunting still.
I don't need it to be web interface - but it would be nice. I could probably rig up something on a console base program. What I want the output to be should look like tcptrack but with the running totals for last day, last month, last year, and if there could be a graph for it- even better.
Any idea ?
