Quick and easisest way:


rpm -Uvh rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm
yum install ntop



# Get yum ready
yum clean all
yum update



# Install Development Tools
yum groupinstall “Development Tools”



# Install more ntop Dependencies
yum install libpcap-devel libpcap



# Install RDD tools dependencies
yum install cairo-devel libxml2-devel pango-devel pango libpng-devel freetype freetype-devel libart_lgpl-devel



# Download, compile and install RDDTools
tar xvzf rrdtool-1.4.5.tar.gz
cd rrdtool-1.4.5
./configure
make
make install



# Download, compile and Install GeopIP
tar xvzf GeoIP.tar.gz
cd GeoIP-1.4.6/
./configure
./make
./make install


NOTE: config at: /usr/local/etc/GeoIP.conf


#Download, compile and install nTop 4.0.1
tar xvzf ntop4.0.1.tar.gz
cd ntop-4.0.1/
autoconf
./configure –with-rrd-home=/opt/rrdtool-1.4.4/

# Add ntop user and directory permissions.
useradd -M -s /sbin/nologin -r ntop
chown -R ntop:root /usr/local/var/ntop/
chown -R ntop:ntop /usr/local/share/ntop/



# Set ntop password
ntop -A

# To start ntop on boot


nano /etc/rc.local # and add: /usr/local/bin/ntop -i “eth0,eth1″ -d -L -u ntop -P /usr/local/
you have multiple interface (eth0, eth1 and so on), start ntop as follows:



# To start ntop
/usr/bin/ntop -i “eth0″ -d -L -u ntop -P /var/ntop –skip-version-check –use-syslog=daemon
htpasswd -c /etc/httpd/.htpasswd segredes


Where,


* -i “eth0,eth1″ : Specifies the network interface or interfaces to be used by ntop for network monitoring. Here you are monitoring eth0 and eth1.
* -d : Run ntop as a daemon.
* -L : Send all log messages to the system log (/var/log/messages) instead of screen.
* -u ntop : Start ntop as ntop user
* -P /usr/local/var/ntop : Specify where ntop stores database files. You may need to backup database as part of your disaster recovery program.
* –skip-version-check : By default, ntop accesses a remote file to periodically check if the most current version is running. This option disables that check.
* –use-syslog=daemon : Use syslog daemon.


By default ntop listen on 3000 port. You can view ntop stats by visiting following url:

Shell Script: Find Number Of Arguments Passed

Many times , when we create shell scripts we try to do repetitive tasks through functions. Some functions take arguments & we have to check the no. of arguments that are passed to it. Each bash shell function has the following set of shell variables: [a] All function parameters or arguments can be accessed via  $1, $2, $3,..., $N . [b]  $*  or  $@  holds all parameters or arguments passed to the function. [c]  $#  holds the number of positional parameters passed to the function. [d] An array variable called  FUNCNAME  ontains the names of all shell functions currently in the execution call stack. Example Create a shell script as follows: #!/bin/bash # Purpose: Demo bash function # -----------------------------   ## Define a function called test() test(){   echo "Function name:  ${FUNCNAME}"   echo "The number of positional parameter : $#"   echo "All parameters or arguments passed to the function: '$@'"   e

AMD Radeon™ HD 7670M on Ubuntu 12.04

Update:   Recently I install kubuntu 13.10 and there is no problem with graphics. It just works  fine out of the box. I've seen many blog posts on how to make AMD HD7670M work on Ubuntu 12.04, specially when its in switchable graphics board like Dell Inspiron 15R 5520. I tried many things to make it work so that I could use the cinnamon desktop on ubuntu & other things too.. But to my surprise even the drivers from AMD site didn't work. Then I tried a combination of those blog posts I read & somehow I became successful in running the full graphics including compiz settings inside My Ubuntu Machine. Following are the steps I followed & it worked... 1. Create a backup of your xorg configuration file: sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.BAK 2. Remove/purge current fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle : sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx* 3. Install the driver: sudo apt-get install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle 4. Install additional

CentOS / Redhat : Configure CentOS as a Software Router with two interfaces

Linux can be easily configured to share an internet connection using iptables. All you need to have is, two network interface cards as follows: a) Your internal (LAN) network connected via eth0 with static ip address 192.168.0.1 b) Your external WAN) network is connected via eth1 with static ip address 10.10.10.1  ( public IP provided by ISP ) Please note that interface eth1 may have public IP address or IP assigned by ISP. eth1 may be connected to a dedicated DSL / ADSL / WAN / Cable router: Step # 1: Enable Packet Forwarding Login as the root user. Open /etc/sysctl.conf file # vi /etc/sysctl.conf Add the following line to enable packet forwarding for IPv4: net.ipv4.conf.default.forwarding=1 Save and close the file. Restart networking: # service network restart Step # 2: Enable IP masquerading In Linux networking, Network Address Translation (NAT) or Network Masquerading (IP Masquerading) is a technique of transceivin
