[Ntop] Track Local Hosts Abnormal CPU Usage

I assume that would be the -n flag?
Seems to have no effect on my operation with -x 4000 hosts, still same
CPU usage hovering around 60-70%. Tried -n and --track-local-hosts,
after 30 minutes of runtime, ntop has processed 1,798,000 packets, and
libpcap has dropped just shy of 10,000,000 packets, and thinks it has
only seen 197MB of traffic over this time (definitely been more, since
555% of packets have been dropped).
So I would have to assume that the name resolution of IP's is not
causing the problem, but thanks for the suggestion!
On that note, I have also tried the -b flag to disable protocol
decoding, but that did not seem to help my CPU usage.
