May want to check out the below tools. but as precaution, the massive collection will not be scalable with MySQL as it is storage-intensive and incredibly slow to access. Nonetheless, it is viable and in storing maybe instead of updating bulk huge records dump into MySQL, maybe consider avoiding SQL UPDATEs as much as possible and use only INSERTs. And have regime to keep the SQL schema lean to include only required fields, strip off all the others. It may fare better.

(quite updated as latest is as of Aug 14, also it has a "Careful SQL support") pmacct is a small set of passive network monitoring tools to measure, account, classify, aggregate and export IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. http://www.pmacct.net/

Scrutinizer is another (commercial) tool that should be already using mysql. May have to check further and it has a Scrutinizer Free Edition (supports unlimited interfaces on up to 5 routers. Stores data for 24 hours). https://www.plixer.com/Scrutinizer-Netflow-Sflow/distributed-flow-collectors.html

sflowtool or ntop as collector and dumping to db

FYI, here is an article on "A Survey of Network Traffic Monitoring and Analysis Tools" which is also good to check out with its comparison and feedbacks http://www.cs.wustl.edu/~jain/cse567-06/ftp/net_traffic_monitors3/index.html
