Packages and Binaries:

darkstat

It is a packet sniffer which runs as a background process and serves its statistics to a web browser:

  • input and output IP traffic by machines, ports and protocols,
  • last minute, hourly, daily and monthly global input and output graphics.

It is known to be smaller (in terms of memory footprint) and stabler than ntop.
