+; A selector table is made out of groups of weighted members, with a given member potentially part
+; of several groups. The select operation returns a member ID by first selecting a group based on an
+; input group ID and then selecting a member within that group by hashing one or several input
+; header or meta-data fields. It is very useful for implementing an Equal-Cost Multi-Path (ECMP) or
+; Weighted-Cost Multi-Path (WCMP) enabled FIB or a load balancer. It is part of the action selector
+; construct described by the P4 Portable Switch Architecture (PSA) specification.
+;
+; Normally, an action selector FIB is built with a routing table (the base table), a selector table
+; (the group table) and a next hop table (the member table). One of the routing table actions sets
+; up the group ID meta-data field used as the index into the group table, which produces the member
+; ID meta-data field, i.e. the next hop ID that is used as the index into the next hop table. The
+; next hop action prepares the output packet for being sent next hop in the network by prepending
+; one or several headers to the packet (Ethernet at the very least), decrementing the TTL and
+; recomputing the IPv4 checksum, etc. The selector allows for multiple next hops to be specified
+; for any given route as opposed to a single next hop per route; for every packet, its next hop is
+; picked out of the set of next hops defined for the route while preserving the packet ordering
+; within the flow, with the flow defined by the selector n-tuple fields.
+;
+; In this simple example, the base table and the member table are striped out in order to focus
+; exclusively on illustrating the selector table. The group_id is read from the destination MAC
+; address and the selector n-tuple is represented by the Protocol, the source IP address and the
+; destination IP address fields. The member_id produced by the selector table is used to identify
+; the output port which facilitates the testing of different member weights by simply comparing the
+; rates of output packets sent on different ports.
