New pflow(4) Features Added

Contributed by jason on from the dont-cross-the-streams dept.

Joerg Goltermann (gollo@) recently committed changes to pflow(4) to expand its usefulness for troubleshooting and accounting.

Read on for more details.

Last week, Joerg added bpf(4) and tcpdump(8) support to pflow, making it possible to monitor the raw packets exported from the pflow interface. And with his recent commit, it's now possible to create multiple pflow(4) interfaces at once. This feature makes it possible to use different flowsrc or flowdst values for sending to different NetFlow collectors.
