       flow-xlate — Apply translations to selected fields of a flow.


       flow-xlate  [-hkn]  [-b big|little]  [-C comment]  [-d debug_level]  [-v variable binding]
       [-V flow_version]  [-x xlate_fname]  [-X xlate_definition]  [-z z_level]


       The flow-xlate utility is used to apply translations to flows.  Translations  are  defined
       in  a configuration file and are composed of actions and a definition to invoke action(s).
       The definitions are in the form of terms,  each  term  can  have  a  filter  and  multiple

       Words  in  the  configuration  file of the form @VAR or @{VAR:default} will be expanded at
       run-time by setting variable names with the -v option.

       Translation actions begin with the xlate-action keyword followed by a symbolic name.  Each
       action has a type defined below.

       Translation  definitions  begin  with  the xlate-definition keyword followed by a symbolic
       name.  Each definition is composed of terms which  are  evaluated  in  the  order  of  the
       configuration file.  A term may invoke a filter to conditionally invoke an action.

         Configuration files:
           Symbols - /etc/flow-tools/sym/*.
           Filter - /etc/flow-tools/cfg/filter.cfg.
           Xlate - /etc/flow-tools/cfg/xlate.cfg.


       The scale option can overflow the 32 bit flow counters.  This could be solved by detecting
       this condition and splitting the flow in two.

       Translation between aggregated and non aggregated formats is not supported.
