We reconsider several issues related to fragmentation and reassembly in IP. We rst reconsider reassembly. We describe a simple expected case optimization that improves reassembly performance to 38 instructions per fragment if the fragments arrive in FIFO order (the same assumption made in header prediction) which has been implemented in the NetBSD kernel. Next, we introduce the new idea of Graceful Intermediate Reassembly (GIR), which is a generalization of the existing IP mechanisms of… CONTINUE READING
