NTopNG – A Free, Open Source, Self Hosted, Network Monitoring and Analysis Tool.

21 Comments



NTOPNG (I pronounce it N-Top-N-G) is a browser based server application you can run in Docker. By setting it up properly, it can scan your entire network and provide analytical data back about traffic patterns adn levels from different machines or sub-networks within your network.

Whether you’re an IT admin, or an at-home self-hoster, viewing, analyzing, and understanding your network traffic patterns can help keep your networks more secure by detecting anomolies and potential intrusion quickly, as well as helping to close security gaps.

      Great video. Question: I want to export netflow/ipfix from my Mikrotik to htopng but I am seeing that ntopng doesnt natively support NetFlow/IPFIX natively. I have your implementation of NTOPNG / Docker build working today.. How do I "insert" NPROBE into my Docker installation to support my routers Netflow export?

      It's crazy how much better the community edition is. If you don't force the community mode, CPU Idle was at 60%+ and accessing the site was constantly 100%.

      Like so many videos the walk through of the product itself is kind of sort of well maybe this might let me click, perhaps. i.e. Not a scripted walkthrough. It's as if it was the first time you've ever looked at it. Install part of the video was useful.

      Fascinating program but got the impression it only gave info about connections with the host machine, I might be wrong on that though but guess network adapter might have to be in promiscuous mode. So much info though that one might get paranoid about what is going on ๐Ÿ˜Ž

      I find the output of 'ip addr show' to be way too verbose for what I usually need. I usually use the 'brief' option to cut it back to the essentials; e.g. 'ip -br a' gives me –

      Great video thanks for all your work. I'm having an issue connecting, my web browser states This site canโ€™t be reached 192.168.0.107 refused to connect.

      Try:

      Checking the connection

      Checking the proxy and the firewall

      ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED
      any thoughts would be appreciated

      yes, I succeeded on my RPI4 in Docker. Two errors needed to be resolved. First observation was an error which indicated that the image is not running on RPI4 (ARM64 Ubuntu). So I switched to jonbackhaus/ntopng image. However also this image resulted into an error. This error did I track down to a bug in Ubuntu of which a workaround exists. Using the –dont-change-user command in the yml file did the trick. It's now working fine. ๐Ÿ™‚
