IPCop Linux Firewall

Monitoring Features

Once IPCop is configured and running, chances are that after a couple of weeks you'll forget it even exists - at least as long as it continues working! But if you like to be proactive in looking for problems, IPCop offers numerous System and Network Status screens as well as graphs of various System resource usages. Figures 31 through 34 show just a few.
