At the end of June, Luca Deri gave a webinar presenting the new features of the next ntopng release. I’d like to take this opportunity now to present these innovations to all of you.
The main enhancements of the new release have been made in the following areas:
With the new ntopng release, ntopng is able to detect, report and alert:
Various Modbus alarms can be activated as behavioral checks:
To enable the detection of abnormal behavior, the following parameters must be configured in the settings in the Behavioural Learning area:
The historical flows are already stored in a Clickhouse database. Over time, this historical data can become very large. If you want to look at data older than a week, for example, you may no longer need such precise granularity.
Thus ntopng now includes the possibility of storing flows aggregated according to criteria you can set yourself. This also depends on alerts.
There are always difficulties in using MS Teams. Thus, a request was made to ntop to improve the monitoring of Zoom and MS Teams connections.
For this reason, nDPI and nProbe have been extended accordingly:
With these extensions, ntopng can now display the individual flows even better. The following screenshot from the new release shows how ntopng can display the flows in even more detail. Please note the info column, in which further personalization of the flows can be made.
With the new ntopng release it will be the first time that ntopng shows hosts which are no longer active.
In the standard host overview you now will see which hosts are currently active and which are no longer active.
The main implementation change here was the presentation of graphical charts. Since performance problems constantly arose when using the graphic charts, it became necessary to rely on a new technology.
Therefore, new libraries for the graphic chart representations were implemented, resulting in significant performance improvements.
