What is ARGUS

Free and open-source tools available for network traffic analysis. Argus stands for Audit Record Generation and Utilization System. The program does just what the acronym says. 

Efficient, in-depth analysis of network data, sifting through big chunks of traffic with fast, comprehensive reporting. 

Whether or not it’s the only traffic monitoring tool users need, it provides a solid foundation.
