FYI, we developed a system that sniffs FE,GE,DS3,OC3-48 POS and creates
a model using the cross-product of: 
1) source/destination address distributions 
2) packet rate 
3) protocol

This works very well to detect floods and does not require messing with

Sampled netflow, or look at the traceback stuff in later
IOS 12.0S versions.  Avoid filter lists as the GSR engine cards
have a statically limited number of entries.
