As a kernel function in network routers, packet classification requires the incoming packet headers to be checked against a set of predefined rules. There are two trends for packet classification: (1) to examine a large number of packet header fields, and (2) to use software-based solutions on multi-core general purpose processors and virtual machines… CONTINUE READING
