    Lightbulb Repo Package request - NfSen (Network monitor tool)

    Hello
    I think it would be great if you could make a RPM for NfSen for your repos.
    NfSen is a network monitor, and it has a lot of great features!
    It uses RRD graphs, the same graphs that you use for the rest of our controllpanel, and contains some aditional features.


    NfSen described here: http://www.linuxscrew.com/2012/03/22...itoring-tools/

    Nfsen is open source Netflow collector and analyzer available under open source license. It differs from monitoring tools described here ó Nfsen collects only network usage data and shows the interactive graphs based on that data.

    I found Nfsen as the only workable open source Netwflow analyzer available for Linux. Using Nfsen you can see the graphs showing network traffic on various hosts or networks, configure alerts (for example if bandwidth usage is lower or higher than average) and what it more important to digg into collected traffic.

    Letís imagine you see traffic spike at the graph that shows that some of your host was generating some TCP traffic 12 hours ago and you wish to know what was that. Nfsen makes it possible to investigate that spike and report what was destination and source IP addresses of that traffic, what was the protocol, port numbers and how many sesstions/flows were established. None of above mentioned monitoring systems do such an investigation. Nfsenís graphs are interactive so you can select what data you wish to see at the graph and aggregate many data sources into one graph, itís better to understand when building protocol breakdown graphs with Nfsen.

    I'll add a thumbs up for this idea too!

    Thinking about it, getting some basic out-of-the-box integration with NfSen and other monitoring tools like Cacti and Nagios would be a real asset to InterWorx.

    InterWorx is in my experience already by far the most reliable and easy to manage CP, but adding monitoring integration right within the product would really just be the icing on the cake as though to speak.

    Cool

    We've been discussing upgrading the graphs stuff!

    (I'm pushing for the graphs to be interactive and output as HTML5 or JS)
    Something like this, but prettier:

    Thanks for these links. I'll take a peek.
