Summarizing tcpdump output

Has anyone summarized output from a large tcpdump file?

I have traffic from a small network for a 24 hour period and need to get general statistics from it. Considering it's over 300K packets, it's causing some problems for me.

I have a MySql server that I'm trying to make use of. I dumped the summary into a table, but not sure where to go from there.

I was looking for some tools/suggestions to use.
