Ok, great, so this is the first result of the activity. Could you please update the ticket with this information. Maybe add a link to the corresponding mailing list thread.

We should focus on a custom converter that can transform TCP streams and files with record items into CTF. Since this program runs on the host, you can also use GPL or LGPL software. Maybe you can ask on a lttng mailing list if they have some tips, e.g. explain your problem with a link to the ticket.
