[netflow-tools] Empty flowd log file

This is my first time to use flowd.    After flowd
installed and configured flow records can't write to
the flowd log.  File is always empty.   flowd.conf
content is here.

# grep -v ^# /usr/local/etc/flowd.conf
logfile "/var/log/flowd.bin"
listen on
flow source <my router IP>
store ALL
discard all

I ran tcpdump and saw flow traffic is coming in from
UDP port 5004.   However the log file is still empty. 
I even modified the log file access to make it global

# ls -al /var/log/flow*
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 0 Jun 26 13:08

Can you please give me a hand to troubleshoot this

Thanks in advance,
