Don't know if it will help in your case, but the dnsCache.db file seems
to cause me trouble when it gets "big". Stop nTop, delete that file,
and fire it up again. Maybe it will help - if not you didn't really

Ntop is a great tool. I use to have the 3.2 version
installed from a RPM on a Fedora 4 machine and that
one use to be kind of stable.
Lately I got the latest stable version from
and compiled that on Fedora 5 and Fedora 4 because I
found no RPM available. All dependencies solved and it
did compiled OK.
I start Ntop with a command like:
ntop -u ntop -i eth1 --daemon --use-syslog=daemon
ntop -u ntop -i eth1 --use-syslog=daemon
--no-promiscuous --no-fc &
Unfortunatelly it will stay up for a while (10 min to
xx days) and then will crash with an error similar to:
*** glibc detected *** ntop: free(): invalid pointer:
======= Backtrace: =========
======= Memory map: ========
Also 3.3 does look great but is slow over a satellite
connection compared to 3.2.
