Description (partial)

UDP source port used to export Netflow packets by the CRS or ASR9K is wrong.

For example:

RP/0/RP0/CPU0:SFR_CRS-X#sh flow exporter EXPORTER-MPLS location 0/1/cpu0
Tue Mar  4 03:09:56.470 FRANCE
Flow Exporter: EXPORTER-MPLS
Flow Exporter memory usage: 3280868
Used by flow monitors: MONITOR-MPLS

Status: Normal
Transport   UDP
Destination      (1337)      VRF default
Source         (63608) << wrong port, correct port is 30968

Source port displayed by the sh command is wrong and suffers from endian swap:

63608 in hex > 0xF878
30968 in hex > 0x78F8

This can be confirmed with a tcpdump on the collector:
User Datagram Protocol, Src Port: 30968 (30968), Dst Port: menandmice-dns (1337)

Flow exporter map is configured, and on a linecard with a little-endian architecture (e.g. Intel-based).
