RE: accounting software (free or $$$)

InMon Traffic Server does sFlow (RFC3176), NetFlow, and XRMON.
Demonstration is at  

Foundry implements XRMON in the JetCore ASIC.  Every port can become an
XRMON/sFlow probe.  You can set the sampling rate to sample off every
port in real time with sFlow.  SNMP data is piggybacked/pushed (not
polled) with sFlow data.  Unlike NetFlow, you can implement this on
every port without a performance impact. InMon Traffic Server becomes a
real time tool in this instance.  I think this is better than NetFlow
(whitepapers from statisticians convinced me), but we do NetFlow too. 

Regardless, I believe it is reasonably priced and you can download a 30
day eval to see if it meets your NetFlow needs.  It installs on RedHat
and it doesn't take long to get it up and running.

42.3% of all statistics are made up on the fly...
