The inbuilt OVS netflow export feature seems to export the 5 basic info present in the packet  (src dst mac,src dst IP, port).
Is there any option to export other data present in a packet.

Without OVS, I was able to do netflow export using a tool called pmacctd. It supported exporting basic netflow data and custom metadata (this was present as part of the packet itself at specific byte location). There was a way to specify custom data with packet pointer bytes, length in pmacctd tool. Just wanted to check whether any such option in current OVS setup.
