Too bad that I can not make it there. Stockholm is not that far from 
where I live. Well if you plan some other trip to Sweden (especially
on something that I can plan for some work education) I may be able
to arrange a meeting. :)

The interesting thing is that if you run ldd on /usr/sbin/ntop you
will notice that it have the following line in it:
	libgd.so.2 => /usr/lib/libgd.so.2 (0xb7b34000)

No reference to that file.

ntop v3.0 package and Memory Growth

Hi,

working backwards from ntop v3.1 due to HIGH CPU usage and now on pre-packaged v3.0 build.  I have included
some host info and my start-up (with output).

You will notice, from my 'top' monitoring that Memory is running as high as 1266Mb but, I started only 318 Mb
24 hours prior !  Is this an intended effect or some process gone awry ?

Finally, is there some switch I can enable to limit this memory growth as we are looking to deploy this on a
host running a dedicated application that has some 'visibility' to our Organization and, don't wish to
impact it.

RE: ntop v3.0 package and Memory Growth

Re CPU ... There's nothing explicitly in the software that should increase
CPU usage.  However, we did move from pcap_loop() to pcap_dispatch().  If
Solaris is a user-land threads implementation, then the discussion we've
been having here re FreeBSD may also apply.

Also, understand that this is often specious - since the system calls
checking for packets are interruptable, within broad limits converting to
poll() type routines doesn't impact other processes.  Since most system
calls allow higher priority work to take control (and round-robin equal
priority work), if there is something ready to run it gets CPU.  So the
difference becomes how often we check (poll()) for an available packet.

Still, it should not be an issue, especially since we strongly recommend
that ntop be the only thing on the box.

Re hosts - read docs/FAQ, the man page and this list (it's discussed on ONE
of them) for info on the -x parameter.  Understand it's pretty crude.  But
it will limit the number of HostTraffic entries ntop creates.

Also, read the discussion in docs/FAQ on hosts - why there's nothing ntop
can control about this as it's due to external forces...
