Hello great community! First, I wanted to say that I love the pmacct software -- it's been a huge boon to our research lab. Thank you all for developing and contributing!
After some usage of the tool, we found that we needed some extra functionality that I couldn't find in the included plugins. Namely, we needed to send json-formatted output over UDP to a server that would perform further processing on the data. I hope that I didn't miss an existing plugin to perform such work! Finding none, I decided to implement a plugin to do just that. I named it jsonudp. I implemented it according to the directions in all the document (ie, copy existing plugins!). I relied heavily on the print_plugin and coded up something that works. I attempted to follow the existing code style and meet the project's standards. I submitted a pull request for the code to the project's repository on github. I'd love to hear feedback on the code and what you think I can improve if you think that it's a feature worth having in the main repository. If you don't think it's worthwhile, I'd love to hear that too! In any event, thank you for building and maintaining such a great tool.
