Nfsen/nfdump is pretty rock solid.  I've been running it for many years
without too many dramas.  I use a combination of sflow / netflow within our
network.   The only issue I have is it seems to incorrectly show packet
rate for sflow but is fine with netflow (due to the 1 in 1024 sample rate
with sflow more than likely - there may be a fix I havn't spent a lot of
time on it)
