    I have cflowd running on a Debian 2.2 box....Cisco device is a 7206VXR (ip
    flow-export version 5 )

    root 31348 0.0 0.7 3916 928 ? S 13:28 0:00
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowdmux /etc/cflowd.conf
    root 31350 0.0 1.3 4928 1768 ? S 13:29 0:00
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowd /etc/cflowd.conf
    root 31374 0.1 0.8 2188 1088 ? S 13:30 0:01
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cfdcollect /etc/cfdcollect.conf

    Flows appear to be exported correctly ->

    total 36464
    drwxrwsrwx 4 root staff 4096 Jun 26 13:28 .
    drwxrwsrwx 3 root staff 4096 May 2 12:35 ..
    drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 4096 Jun 26 13:30 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.0
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.1
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.2
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.3
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.4
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.5
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.6
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.7
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.8
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 1000000 Jun 26 13:29
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.flows.9

    Then in the xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dir ->

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 430 Jun 26 13:40 arts.20010626

    So it appears as if data is being dumped, but when I run
    flowdump/flowdumper, i get...

    vagabond:/usr/local/arts/data/cflowd/flows# perl flowdumper -v
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/arts.20010626
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/arts.20010626: Invalid index in cflowd flow file:
    0xDFB00000! Version 5 flow-export is required with *all* fields being saved.
    e.g. COLLECT: { flows }
    vagabond:/usr/local/arts/data/cflowd/flows# perl flowdump
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/arts.20010626
    Unrecognized character \177 at flowdump line 1.
    You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
    vagabond:/usr/local/arts/data/cflowd/flows

    My clfowd.conf file contains ->

    CISCOEXPORTER {
      HOST: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx # IP address of Cisco sending
    data.
      ADDRESSES: { xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx }
                                    # Addresses of interfaces on Cisco
                                    # sending data.
      CFDATAPORT: 2056 # Port on which to listen for data.
      SNMPCOMM: 'public' # SNMP community name.
      COLLECT: { flows, protocol }
    }

    and my cdfcollect.conf ->

    system {
      logFacility: local6 # Syslog to local6 facility.
      dataDirectory: /usr/local/arts/data/cflowd/flows
      filePrefix: arts
      pidFile: /usr/local/arts/etc/cfdcollect.pid
    }

    #---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    # An example cflowd stanza for the case where cflowd is running on the
    # local host.
    #---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    cflowd {
      host: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
      tcpCollectPort: 2056
      minPollInterval: 300
    }

    Any ideas/Suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

    Regards,
    Michael
