Hi Franz,

Are you interested in the pmacct server hostname or the IP address of
the NetFlow/IPFIX/sFlow exporter? Would peer_src_ip, the IP address of
the flow exporter do it? Or you are collecting via libpcap or NFLOG?

we use pmacct to purge traffic data to a MySQL database for billing

all relevant traffic.

It would be most convenient for postprocessing if all pmacct
instances could write into the same SQL tables. For example by
adding an additional column with the hostname of the pmacct server.

Unfortunately I only know how to assign a certain database or table
to each pmacct instance. But not how to modifiy the SQL schema to
support a hostname or other identifier.

Kind regards,

Hi Paolo,

At the moment we use libpcap instead of netflow. Those there is unfortunately no flow exporter.

I used netflow for a while but I like to just rely on a mirrored switch port. I think it's easier to manage in contrast to networking gear with netflow support.
