[Nelug] Reading GNU dbm files

I've recently installed some linux-based network monitoring servers at
work (as we've got a few spare PCs and there isn't usually much else
to do on night-shifts). So the company's acquired nagios for alerting
on services, cpu state etc, mrtg to graph network traffic, CPU and
disc space, and (just this week) ntop to show which computers network
traffic is passing between.
Ntop captures network packets and stores some data in a set of GNU dbm
files, which I'd like to read to help me understand how ntop works. I
know that there's a dbm library for C, and perl can handle dbm files,
but are there any front-end programs that can handle dbm files (just
to save me the work of writing something).
