Apparently the authors above have a Patent Pending? 

Abstract: The present invention relates to a packet analysis system and method, which enables cluster nodes to process in parallel a large quantity of packets collected in a network in an open source distribution system called Hadoop. The packet analysis system based on a Hadoop framework includes a first module for distributing and storing packet traces in a distributed file system, a second module for distributing and processing the packet traces stored in the distributed file system in a cluster of nodes executing Hadoop using a MapReduce method, and a third module for transferring the packet traces, stored in the distributed file system, to the second module so that the packet traces can be processed using the MapReduce method and outputting a result of analysis, calculated by the second module using the MapReduce method, to the distributed file system.
