Passive network monitoring tools to measure, account, aggregate, classify, and export IPv4 and IPv6 traffic






IP accounting is key activity underlying popular ISP/IXP network operations like billing, graphing network resources usage, live or historical traffic trends analysis, management of network thresholds and SLA monitoring.

Often SNMP counters do not help because of their coarse granularity; traffic mirroring, NetFlow and sFlow break this barrier by offering data at a finer granularity, ie. intercepting logical entities of greater interest such as Autonomous Systems, departmental or customer networks or just specific traffic flows.

But actual high-speed large-scale networks are able to produce, in very short times, high amounts of data that become quickly difficult to be processed. In this context, traffic aggregation and advanced filtering and sampling capabilities become key requirements.

pmacct is an open source and small set of passive network monitoring tools to measure, account, classify, export and aggregate IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.

Either using memory or SQL tables as backend storage, pmacct can easily feed data into external tools including RRDtool, GNUPlot, Net-SNMP, MRTG and Cacti among the others.

Little scripting abilities are required and a number of sample scripts, contributions, web frontends and some tutorials are already available.
