    If I'm not wrong the netmask saved in netmatrix database is the same as
    in the packet flow exported by the router...
    Please see with "flowwatch" the complete export packet, look in the field
    "Mask Lenght", for instance:
    src masklen: 19
    dst masklen: 25

    So as the netmatrix database only saves "nets" the mask lenght is used
    to find the correct "subnet" or "supernet"...
