2012

Spent the whole week working on the collector and a simple client to test it.
Shane helped with working out a packet format which would be used to send details about flows over a network. After working out the format, I started gradually developping a script(lpicp_export.cc) which formats the data according to the required packet structure. Currently, it adds a header, the name of the monitor(or "unnamed" if not specified), a subheader.
After that, I started working on a client which would read in the bytes and parse the values to extract the information sent by the server.

The plan for next week is to make the exporting script send out values from the counters and have the client parse the bytes received as before, as well as looking into using threads to have a separate thread writing out data to the DB while the program reads in values from a trace/other input source.
