Thanks for the replies on this.

Ipaudit is more of a one-shot tool. Its usage mode is to leave it 
running for either a specific number of packets, or until you terminate 
it with a signal. I want to track the flows continuously, and log them 
every time interval.

I'll have a look at stream4 and see if it can be persuaded to do what I

Argus looks very versatile. Its notion of flows are a superset of what I 
need. It would be possible, though inconvenient, to use its Flow and 
Model definitions to get the behavior I want. However, because you can't 
specify ports by ranges, I am left with either writing a very large and 
complex Flow Modeler Policy Configuration, or losing  the notion of 
server and client, which in this case is more important to me than 
source and destination.

Thanks for the suggestions. If you can think of ways I might do this 
more easily than with Snort, I would definitely like to hear about them.
