Raspberry Pi the credit-card-sized single board computer device which adopts a high performance embedded microprocessor and an embedded real-time Linux operating system, which hangs the characteristics of miniaturization, digitalization and network together well. It has virtues of low cost, small volume and flexible networking, etc, because of embedded technology adoption. Network administrators need to see whatÃ¢ÂÂs going on with their network. They need to know what the traffic on their network is comprised of, who's using the bandwidth, and how their infrastructure is handling the load. Fortunately, Linux runs a wide variety of free, open source network monitoring and traffic analysis applications that can give net administrator this type of insight. So this paper focuses on how to deploy network monitoring tool within this device which monitors the network traffic within LAN using the tool ntop. Ntop is a simple, free, portable traffic measurement and monitoring tool, which supports various management activities, including network optimization and to plan, and detection of network security violations.
