  IPTraf, IP Network Monitoring Software


IPTraf is a console-based network statistics utility for Linux. It gathers
a variety of figures such as TCP connection packet and byte counts,
interface statistics, activity indicators, TCP/UDP traffic breakdowns, and
LAN station packet and byte counts.

 * An IP traffic monitor that shows information on the IP traffic passing
over your network. Includes TCP flag information, packet and byte counts,
ICMP details, OSPF packet types.
 * General and detailed interface statistics showing IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP,
non-IP and other IP packet counts, IP checksum errors, interface activity,
packet size counts.
 * A TCP and UDP service monitor showing counts of incoming and outgoing
packets for common TCP and UDP application ports.
 * A LAN statistics module that discovers active hosts and shows
statistics showing the data activity on them.
 * TCP, UDP, and other protocol display filters, allowing you to view only
traffic you're interested in.
 * Logging.
 * Supports Ethernet, FDDI, ISDN, SLIP, PPP, and loopback interface types.

 * Utilizes the built-in raw socket interface of the Linux kernel,
allowing it to be used over a wide range of supported network cards.
 * Full-screen, menu-driven operation.
