Ntopng compiled with sqlite?
I spend hours trying to make ntop work (fail!) but found ntopng! Awesome.
I would like to enable logging data to disk, but the option requires sqlite.
I see I could modifiy /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ntopng.sh to add the '-F'
–dump-flows | -F
Dump expired flows. If ntopng is compiled with sqlite support, flows
can dumped persistently on disk using this option. Databases are
created daily under <data directory="">/<interface>db.
Question: Has the ntopng addon for pfsense been compiled with sqlite support? Or any suggestions how this dump to disk feature could be enabled
(This is test lab environment)
Yes, it has.
The FreeBSD port lists sqlite in the ntopng port's Makefile, and it's not a selectable option so it's always on, so it should have that support included.
to be able to save data to disk you should first specify the directory with write permission but before that we should have a user to run the service because by default the service runs with user "nobody".
there are a lot of options that are not available on the web GUI need to be added and configured.
Were you ever able to sort out getting ntopng to keep historical data? If so, would you mind sharing your method and it's result?
On 2.2 its seems I see the option tic box for historical data…. and... its seems to work! Awesome
Thank you so much for including this option on the GUI
in what directory does ntopng store the information? I tried looking in /usr/pbi/ntopng-i386 but nothing :(
