I have installed flow tools
I attempted to run the following
# ./flow-capture -e3 -E10M -V5 -w /opt/FlowTools 0/188.8.131.52/9995
where -e3 is expire count 3 files
-E10M is the size of these three files at 10 MB each
-V5 is teh netflow format ver 5
-w /opt/FlowTools is the directoty where I want files stored
0/184.108.40.206/9995 is teh local ip, remote ip and port respectively (I
assume the 0/reffers to "this ost"
This is the error I see
flow-capture: open(/var/run/flow-capture.pid.9995): No such file or
I am not sure where to go next.

We collect flows from about 19 routers using about a dozen small Suns.
Data is forwarded to a single Sun 280 with dual 900 MHz processors, 1
GByte of memory and a half-terabyte of raid disk.
Total raw data size is about 4 GBytes/day, compressed.
It takes 12-18 hours to process one days' data.
We use the data for usage and performance reasons, not real-time
