Thanks Paolo. I didn’t understand it because I skipped the section about Custom SQL tables because I *assumed* since I did not intend to use custom sql tables, I didn’t need any of the information contained there.
Seems like you always use a custom table (even when you use the example SQL files in the distribution), and aggregation is how you specify the columns you’re interested in. Regards, Fanen.

Do a: shell> pmacctd -i <interface> -c src_host,dst_host,src_port,dst_port,proto Query it in another terminal window with: shell> pmacct -s Then stop the first pmacctd instance and re-do as: shell> pmacctd -i <interface> -c src_host,dst_host Query it in the other terminal window with: shell> pmacct -s Granted -c sets the aggregation method and not specifying any plugins it defaults to the memory table one, this should already answer several of your questions.
