Flow-tools is library and a collection of programs used to collect,
send, process, and generate reports from NetFlow data. The tools can be
used together on a single server or distributed to multiple servers for
large deployments. The flow-tools library provides an API for
development of custom applications for NetFlow export versions 1,5,6 and
the 14 currently defined version 8 subversions. A Perl and Python
interface have been contributed and are included in the package.
A NetFlow is network traffic information exported (via UDP) to an external
machine. The external machine processes such information to produce network
traffic accounting, network billing, network monitoring, etc.
