Network monitoring tool

Post by DPINoob786 »

Hi Guys.
trust you're well.

please assist me, is there a network monitoring tool within dietpi-software that I could install what I require is the following :

* an easily accessible graphical interface (preferred web based)
* must be able to send notifications and alerts
* able to group or categorize IP's or departments within a business
* access based for network admins

this looks like a requirement for a professional network monitoring/admin tool. Something like this is not available by dietpi-software catalogue. But if you found some, being able to install on Debian, it should work on DietPi as well.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

bandwidthd might be what you are looking for
BandwidthD tracks usage of TCP/IP network subnets and builds html files with graphs to display utilization. Charts are built by individual IPs, and by default display utilization over 2 day, 8 day, 40 day, and 400 day periods. Furthermore, each ip address's utilization can be logged out at intervals of 3.3 minutes, 10 minutes, 1 hour or 12 hours in cdf format, or to a backend database server. HTTP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, VPN, and P2P traffic are color coded.
or perhaps ntopng
ntopng® is a web-based network traffic monitoring application released under GPLv3. It is the new incarnation of the original ntop written in 1998, and now revamped in terms of performance, usability, and features.

While you can read more about ntopng on the ntop web site (, we suggest you to start reading the doc/ file for learning how to compile and use ntopng.

If instead of source code you prefer to use a pre-built package, please go to

We build binary packages for the following platforms:

Ubuntu Linux Server x64
CentOS/RedHat Linux x64
Windows x64
RaspberryPI/BeagleBoard ARM (based on Ubuntu Linux)

Precompiled packages can be found here
