I don't know what you mean. Client records are sent every time the client record updates due to captured data.

> 2) what is the meaning of the firsttime?

Epoc time first seen.

> 3) what is the meaning of lasttime? is it a) the last time the client connected b) the last time the client performed some interaction with the lan, e.g. performed internet browsing
> c) other

Epoc time of last packet seen

Shouldn't be zero and I don't think I've ever seen that. Only one packet leads to first and last being identical. XML had bugs fixed in svn.
