    Hi Edwin,

    Im currently on the verge of installing cflowd and flowscan. your website
    and netflow implementation has given a breath of encouragement. I wanted to
    give up.

    1)Can/Does cflowd/flowscan show per subnet statistics or
    is flow-tools capable of this

    2)The top summaries how is this generated. what other tools have you
    installed/integarted with netflow to get/generate this data in the tabular
