Network traffic usage monitor

'ntop' is a network probe that shows network usage in a way similar to what top does for processes. In interactive mode, it displays the network status on the user's terminal. In Web mode, it acts as a Web server, creating an HTML dump of the network status. It sports a NetFlow/sFlow emitter/collector, and an HTTP-based client interface for creating ntop-centric monitoring applications.
