IPTraf 3.0.0

An ncurses-based IP LAN monitor that generates various network statistics
IPTraf is a console-based network statistics tool for Linux. It gathers a variety of figures such as TCP connection packet and byte counts, interface statistics and activity indicators, TCP/UDP traffic breakdowns, and LAN station packet and byte counts.

Protocols Recognized

- IP
- TCP
- UDP
- ICMP
- IGMP
- IGP
- IGRP
- OSPF
- ARP
- RARP

Non-IP packets will simply be indicated as "Non-IP" and, on Ethernet LAN's, will be supplied with the appropriate Ethernet addresses.

Supported Interfaces

- Local loopback
- All Linux-supported Ethernet interfaces
- All Linux-supported FDDI interfaces
- SLIP
- Asynchronous PPP
- Synchronous PPP over ISDN
- ISDN with Raw IP encapsulation
- ISDN with Cisco HDLC encapsulation
- Parallel Line IP

The information generated by IPTraf can be valuable in making network organization decisions, troubleshooting LANs and tracking activity of various IP hosts.

Main features:

  • 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.
