       Perhaps this is a bit off topic for this list, but anyway: i'm not
       sure what you are trying to achieve with these dumps, and why do you
       think you need a database, but you could consider a tool like argus
       ( to help you analyse these dumps by
       studying network flows, and aggregating them as needed. A tool like
       this is especially usefull when you need to parse big pcap dumps.
