 Network Administration from Linux

Newsforge talks about watching your network using Linux and looks at the book Open Source Network Administration.

"MRTG can also tip you off about things such as DDoS attacks by charting sudden spikes in demand; you can then use tcpdump to take a look at the packets. Other good tools include ping, a staple which I don't need to say much about, and traceroute, which shows the paths packets take from your machine to a target on the network. More useful on networks bigger than mine, I thought."
