flow-import — Import flows into flow-tools from other NetFlow packages.


flow-import [ -h ] [ -b big|little ] [ -d debug_level ] [ -f format ] [ -m mask_fields ] [ -V pdu_version ] [ -z z_level ]


The flow-import utility will convert data from cflowd and ASCII CSV files into flow-tools format.


-b big|little
Byte order of output.
-d debug_level
Enable debugging.
-f format

Export format. Supported formats are:

0 cflowd
3 Cisco NFCollector
Display help.
-m mask_fields

Select fields for cflowd and ASCII formats. The mask_fields is built from a bitwise OR of the following:

The default value is all fields applicable to the pdu_version.

-V pdu_version

Use pdu_version format output.

1    NetFlow version 1 (No sequence numbers, AS, or mask)
5    NetFlow version 5
6    NetFlow version 6 (5+ Encapsulation size)
7    NetFlow version 7 (Catalyst switches)
8.1  NetFlow AS Aggregation
8.2  NetFlow Proto Port Aggregation
8.3  NetFlow Source Prefix Aggregation
8.4  NetFlow Destination Prefix Aggregation
8.5  NetFlow Prefix Aggregation
8.6  NetFlow Destination (Catalyst switches)
8.7  NetFlow Source Destination (Catalyst switches)
8.8  NetFlow Full Flow (Catalyst switches)
8.9  NetFlow ToS AS Aggregation
8.10 NetFlow ToS Proto Port Aggregation
8.11 NetFlow ToS Source Prefix Aggregation
8.12 NetFlow ToS Destination Prefix Aggregation
8.13 NetFlow ToS Prefix Aggregation
8.14 NetFlow ToS Prefix Port Aggregation
1005 Flow-Tools tagged version 5
-z z_level
Configure compression level to z_level. 0 is disabled (no compression), 9 is highest compression.


Convert the cflowd file flows.cflowd to the flow-tools file flows. Store as Version 5 with compression level 5.

flow-import -V5 -z5 -f0 < flows.cflowd > flows


Convert the ASCII CSV data in flows.ascii to flow-tools format. The ASCII data must include all fields represented by 0xFF31EF in the order listed above. Store as Version 5 with no compression.

flow-import -z0 -f2 -m0xFF31EF < flows.ascii > flows


The pcap format is a hack.
