[ARGUS] Question about Flow features

I hope you're all good.

I currently have some difficulties generating some flow features I want.

Is there a possibility to get the standard deviation of packet sizes for the standard flows that ra generates?
I only found smeanpkts as a flow field so I wonder if there is the same for standard deviation, but unfortunately I did not found one.
The same would be useful for inter arrival time of packets.
In both cases I tried generating them myself using racluster with aggregation key none (to keep the the flows as they are) and RACLUSTER_AGG_METRIC on different attributes (bytes for the packet size, sintpkt for the interarrival times), but it didn't work out.

Is it possible to get a distribution of packet sizes in a flow or the size of the first packet? For example, 5 packets of size 200 and 4 of size 100 and first packet has size 100.
These are some flow features I found in some papers but I don't have an idea how to get it if it's even possible.

In both cases I wanted to ask if this is possible with the standard clients or if it would be necessary to change something in the code to get what I want.

Thanks in advance
