Are there any plans to merge FLoP with the snort project?

I implemented one possibility to dump the statistics
on a periodical basis to an unix socket. A perl script
(or somesthing else) is able to read these information
and feed them in a RRD database. This is part of the
Fast Logging Project - FLoP. You can find it at


For the statistics take a look at:


But the RRD database is still kept on the sensor...
