Subject Re: Netflow parser
Date Mon, 17 Apr 2017 14:57:16 GMT
Good morning everyone,

      Was there ever a netflow parser processor built? I am currently
working on a netflow issue and have seen several people discuss netflow
parsing in threads but I haven't seen any information about the release of
a netflow processor. The version I am currently working with is v9.
