based upon the IP Flow Information Export (IPFIX) protocol.  It
proposes a set of requirements for flat-file, binary flow data file
formats, then specifies the IPFIX File format to meet these

designed to facilitate interoperability and reusability among a wide
variety of flow storage, processing, and analysis tools.  [STANDARDS
