[netflow-tools] softflowd and -m ?

	I am new to using netflows and am experimenting by using softflowd to send tcpdump created files to ntop.

Everything seems to be working except that I noticed a strange change in stats when using the -m option in softflowd.

With out specifying the -m, ntop reports 1.4GB of traffic with an average of 136Mbps. If I run softflowd with "-m 1000000" ntop now reports that 250MB of traffic was seen ?

Does any one know why this would happen ?
