No, I haven't. I've started reading about it now though.

This is what I'm trying to do. Get raw numbers to drag into R where I 
can manipulate/play with them. So far I'm only been able to do this with 
numbers exported from cacti and was hoping for something a little more 
detailed so as to investigate individual users, protocol, autonomous 
systems, etc. Can you comment further on how your using R or can you 
point to any useful information on networks traffic and analysis with R.
