cl-flowd

Common Lisp Netflow log reader for flowd logs.

The core of this code originally appeared in the small-cl-source@common-lisp.net mailling list. The original author is Ingvar Mattison. The code has been updated to work with modern flowd Netflow log files and extended functionality.

The functions prefixed with -v2 are for working with older flowd datastores. For modern installations of flowd the non prefixed versions of these functions should be used
