No luck with the tcpdump (it only shows the broadcast routing protocol
messages from a virtual router interface that it is connected with;my test
bed topology has multiple hosts) during ipfix flush command either.

Is there any logs for ipfix / NAT translation logs stored on the local
machine where vpp is running? So far the only way you can obtain the
translated ports currently is by running tcpdump on the vpp machine
outbound interface but they are not viable to maintain logging. I have
tried running tcpdump on the vpp machine on the interface which is used to
check ping connectivity with the collector machine and have still not
observed anything relevant.

Thanks.
