How to decode netflow_elements Key Values pair?

Path Finder

I have configured splunk stream app to collect netflow data from network.
Incoming data is being collected and indexed well, however some fields in search output are shown as below:

input_snmpidx:   6  
netflow_elements:   [   [-] 
         UNKNOWN : 0ab132f5 
         UNKNOWN : 0ab1320b 
         UNKNOWN : 9f99 
         UNKNOWN : 00a1 
         UNKNOWN : 02   
         UNKNOWN : 07e9 

Netflow exporter device is Cisco ASA Version 8.4(4)1.
I need to know an approach how to display these fields in a correct way.

Hi @pkarpushin , 

Did you find a solution to this issue? I am facing the exactly same issue in my environment. I tried following THIS Splunk doc, but it didn't work. 

Let me know if you have any leads on this.

I have a similar challenge - just a different source. Did anyone find an suitable approach?

Hi, did you manage to decode these values? I have the same problem with Cisco High Speed Logging.
