I'm looking for some statistics about the most common used LAN network services... does anyone know a source for this kind of information?

Is there somekind of report about the current network services tendencies?

Thanks

Define "network service" in this context. –  John Gardeniers Apr 16 '10 at 10:17
    
Services like dns, dhcp, smb, etc. –  Joao Heleno Apr 20 '10 at 12:31

"network services" statistics of you, me, your neighbor, the internet? who?. I have a feeling there is more to this question, as one of my cohorts would say: "What is the real question?" –  l0c0b0x Jun 4 '10 at 22:22

Depending on where you set ntop up to collect data it should be able to show you network usage.

"ntop is a network traffic probe that shows the network usage, similar to what the popular top Unix command does. ntop is based on libpcap and it has been written in a portable way in order to virtually run on every Unix platform and on Win32 as well."
