For those unfamiliar with ARGUS, more information can be found at
Argus is a packet analyzer. It promiscuously monitors network traffic and
logs information on traffic flows in its own record format. Argus, like many
other packet analyzers, makes use of libpcap. The libpcap library provides a
common interface for capturing packets. The sflowtool utility
http://www.inmon.com/sflowTools.htm converts sFlow packet streams into
libpcap format and should allow you to use ARGUS to analyze sFlow data.
sflowtool can convert sFlow into a variety of other formats providing a
large number of options for analyzing sFlow.
Another alternative is NTOP http://www.ntop.org/ - a free traffic analyzer
that provides native support for sFlow.
The list http://www.sflow.org/software.htm provides links to additional free
and commercial software that can by used to analyze sFlow data.
Which particular features of ARGUS are you interested in? There are a large
number of traffic monitoring applications available, some with very similar
features to ARGUS. Depending on your requirements there may be a number of
tools that could satisfy them.
