Decision-tree-based packet classification algorithms such as HiCuts, HyperCuts, and EffiCuts show excellent search performance by exploiting the geometrical representation of rules in a classifier and searching for a geometric subspace to which each input packet belongs. However, decision tree algorithms involve complicated heuristics for determining the field and number of cuts. Moreover, fixed interval-based cutting not relating to the actual space that each rule covers is ineffective and… CONTINUE READING
