    Please help, what format are the cflowd flow files in?
    Here is my setup:

    root 5835 1 0 17:09 ? 00:00:00
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowdmux /usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf
    root 5942 1 0 17:10 ? 00:00:00
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowd -s 60 -O 0 -m
    /usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf

    and my conf file:

    OPTIONS {
         LOGFACILITY: local6
         TCPCOLLECTPORT: 2055
         TABLESOCKFILE: /home/flowscan/cflowdtable.socket
         FLOWDIR: /home/flowscan/flows
         FLOWFILELEN: 1000000
         NUMFLOWFILES: 10
         MINLOGMISSED: 300
       }
       CISCOEXPORTER {
         HOST: 193.x.xxx.x
    ADDRESSES: { 193.x.x.x, 193.x.x.x, 193.x.x.x } # Addresses of
    interfaces on Cisco
         CFDATAPORT: 2055
            COLLECT: { protocol, portmatrix, ifmatrix, nexthop,
    netmatrix,
                      asmatrix, tos, flows }
       }
       COLLECTOR {
         HOST: 193.1.xxx.xxx
         AUTH: none
       }

    now here are the cflowd files in /home/flowscan/flows/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 110 Jun 24 17:11
    flows.20020624_17:11:59+0100
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 550 Jun 24 17:12
    flows.20020624_17:13:01+0100
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 110 Jun 24 17:13
    flows.20020624_17:14:02+0100
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 495 Jun 24 17:14
    flows.20020624_17:15:03+0100
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 110 Jun 24 17:15
    flows.20020624_17:16:05+0100
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 495 Jun 24 17:16
    flows.20020624_17:17:07+0100

    when I open then with VI I see this! Is this the correct format? Should
    I see this in tabular format in plain english?
