network protocol grapher?

Dunno if this is the right place for this - I'm after a recommendation for an application for monitoring network traffic.

Looking for something between wireshark and Cacti/MRTG. What I want is Cacti/MRTG graphs, but with the protocols displayed for what is on the wire too.

What I need to do this via is a mirrored port, I have no snmp / netflow access to these devices.

So I'd want a line graphing HTTP traffic and a line for SMTP traffic. If anyone can recommend anything, would really appreciate it - each tool I've looked at that can do this seems to have an snmp requirement.

Hi, it seems apparent that ntop may be what youre looking for.

It mentions snmp as an alternative, check out the guides at...

hope this helps, regards Glenn
