Whoa. All these years I've been using ntop just like top, I had no idea it had a daemon mode and a built-in web interface! There's nothing at all wrong with @ckhan's suggestion, but I'll accept this one as I feel ntop's built-in web interface is easier to use than tcpdump followed by Wireshark.

Thanks, that seems like a reasonable way to go. Do you know if Wireshark can automatically produce the kind of output I'm after (e.g. "1000 connections to serverA, 967 connections to serverB...") or would I have to write a script to build up that information from the TCP dump myself?

I can accept, I can't upvote until I have 15 rep :)

Thanks - none of those down-sides are an issue with this specific job, but the Parted Magic CD certainly looks like a handy thing to have around, so I'll give G4L and Clonezilla a try.
