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,
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.
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?
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

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"
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 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?
