If you have enough cpu/memory/other as you say you do, then I would
suspect that the packets are disappearing before they get as far as
your collector. Remember UDP is unreliable so if your netflow export
packets travel at some point over a congested link, they will be
dropped and lost for ever.
Incidentally, the 2.39511e-269% loss is completely wrong (in case you
hadn't noticed :-)). This appears to be a bug with cflowd. Strangely
it used to work, many versions ago, but these days it's broken. One
hopes the missed flow count is accurately measured...
