hi Mingfan Lu,
xlators are not supposed to know which part of the stack they belong to. If you think the functionality needs to be different when it is in server vs client side. Would writing two different xlators one for client side and the other for server side make sense? May be knowing a bit more about what you want to implement may give a better understanding for us to suggest better.
