     I was able to install the cflowd-2-1-b1 with arts++-1-1-a8. However cflowd is logging data only once when I start it. After that no new flows it is recording from cisco 4500 router.

    Then I tried to start cflowd with following options
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowd -s 250 /usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf
    it says its an invalid option.

    Now what i am doing is I am killing and restarting cflowd every 5 minutes using this statement through cron daemon
    0-59/5 * * * * root /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowd /usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf
    4,9,14,19,24,29,34,39,44,49,54,59 * * * * root killall cflowd

    whereas in startup file S99cflowd i have put

    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cflowdmux /usr/local/arts/etc/cflowd.conf
    sleep 5
    /usr/local/arts/sbin/cfdcollect /usr/local/arts/etc/cfdcollect.conf

    With this I am getting flows every 5 minutes!!!

    Actually I want to start cflowdmux cflowd and cfdcollect through startup script and use -s option.

    Have I done something wrong in compilation?

    Thanks and Regards
