    Guys,

    Thanks to all! I tried to start and stop NTOP with no luck; always is dead. But I did try vnstat and it works great! So I am happy to stick with that, thanks Tony! Can you or someone answer:

    - How do I reset vnstat to zero, I am trying to monitor over my billing period, which is unfortunately not a calendar month
    - I uninstalled NTOP like this:
    chkconfig ntop off
    rpm -e ntop

    Is that all I have to do? I know it uses a lot of overhead,

    Regards!
    Drew

    Thanks Tony!

    Yes, I can see that redirect now, thanks.

    I seem to have a different problem with NTOP. I tried the listening command you gave and saw nothing. I then found when I do a "service ntop status" I get:

    ntop dead but subsys locked

    I even rebooted and got the same. Any idea why it might not be running?

    I can try vnstat now also.

    Thanks Tony!

    I modified as noted and can now start and stop the script as expected. Great! However, I don't know how to get output. I thought I was supposed to browse to http://serveraddress:3000 or https://serveraddress:3001 but doing either just causes the browser to hang. Any thoughts?

    Hi Tony,

    The link you sent appears to be dead...

    Drew, It is a few years since I installed ntop - so am not familiar with any present problems
    and no longer use it, though if I have time will give it a go...

    However, another program you might like to consider is vnStat and a php frontend that will
    integrate with the web-server.

    Instructions are at "http://danda.poweredbyclear.com/master-frame-vnstat.html"

    Examples of output can be found by clinking on "Click here" for the systems in the left-hand
    frame and then clicking on "vnStat with vnStat PHP frontend"

    Help with NTOP?

    I am trying to track internet usage for billing, as something is not adding up. I saw a lot of suggestions to try NTOP, and I installed it using:

    yum --enablerepo=clearos-epel install ntop

    But it seems to be failing with these errors:

    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 **ERROR** INITWEB: binding problem - 'Bad file descriptor'(9)
    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 Check if another instance of ntop is running
    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 or if the current user (-u) can bind to the specified port
    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 **FATAL_ERROR** Binding problem, ntop shutting down...
    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 CLEANUP[t140356502747456]: ntop caught signal 2 [state=2]
    Tue Jul 28 17:25:31 2015 ntop is now quitting...

    I did see some earlier thread noting the EPEL version had a problem but I could not find the resolution.

    Is this the right tool for me to pursue? And what is the issue above?

    Thanks,
    Drew
