The web interface of ntop seems to be very buggy, I've tried the latest
snapshot of ntop from time to time over the last 2 years, and always I have
the same problem - after some hours of running (6 hours to 3 days) clicking
on the various stats pages of the web interface will crash ntop with a core
dump. In my case the machine has 256MB of ram and there is plenty of ram
free at the time.
I posted a detailed message to this list about it about a month ago, but I
received no replies
