DESCRIPTION
ntop shows the current network usage. It displays a list of hosts that are currently using the network and reports information concerning the (IP and non IP)
traffic generated and received by each host. ntop may operate as a front end collector (sFlow and/or netFlow plugins) or as a stand alone collector/display
program. A web browser is needed to access the information captured by the ntop program.

ntop is a hybrid layer 2 / layer 3 network monitor, that is by default it uses the layer 2 Media Access Control (MAC) addresses AND the layer 3 tcp/ip
addresses. ntop is capable of associating the two, so that ip and non ip traffic (e.g. arp, rarp) are combined for a complete picture of network activity.
