    Monitoring tool for real time traffic

    Do you know an application to monitor real-time Ip traffic? Actualy I use MRTG, but I want something to be more detailed and to tell me traffic on ip bases and to be real time.

    have you considered using the built-in command tcpdump. You can later edit the result file with Ethereal and get full details on each packet going in and out of your NIC.

    I guess this is not real-time as you expect but i don't think you'll get something more detailed.

    do a

    man tcpdump
    to see how to use the command. If it appears that you don't have it search the web for the correct tcpdump package to install

    hope this helps

    well you could check out Sawmill. its a log parser that can return all sorts of detailed information from pretty much any log format (firewalls, gateway devices, webserver logs, syslog, Ethereal, TCPDump, etc.. ) so you just have to collect the data then use sawmill to parse the logs or database files.

    and there is a way to get it for free, but you have to earn a copy by doing testing.

    It runs on Linux, Mac OSX, Solaris, BSD, Windows.
