This group is not part of the GNU Project.

This is the first (to the authors' knowledge) free and open-source implementation of a RMON2 network monitoring agent available.  The implementation focuses on RFC-2021, with protocolDir, protocolDist, nlHost, nlMatrix, alHost and alMatrix groups already functional.

There is also a module suitable for loading into Net-SNMP via dlmod.

An prototype support for an extension, known as ID-Trace, is under development.  This extension enables the agent to do stateful inspection on packets, coded with the Protocol Trace Specification Language (PTSL) and without breaking the RMON2 MIB semantics.

Working under FreeBSD!

I've successfully built and run latest CVS Ramon under FreeBSD-5.4 Stable (as of june/2005).

It took unexpected amounts of work: I expected to have a hard time with the thread stuff, and little work with network code (.h includes and structs).  It turned out completelly "flipped".  Threads were somewhat easy, and net required lots of #ifdefs.

CVS tag is still rmon2_0_3_0_pre9

I'm currently fixing the server, and all work is being done under the current CVS tag, which is:


I hope to get this fixed soon, as there are lots of things to do which aren't even in the Task tracker (no spare time to fill it up!)
