## Description:

This component is built using python, which will read opsview netflow stats from the netflow queue and push them on to the database. This package works as follows

The handler will have a single process running continuously reading from the queue. Once it has found a message it will try to add to the database following the rule below.

  1. Find in the database if the host id and timestamp exist, if not create one

  2. If the data exist, compare it and the maximum data should be added to the database by doing and update.
