The method comprises determining whether the flow of a packet is being learnt by the network device; in response to determining that the flow is already being learnt, forwarding the packet without sending a request to insert a new entry in one of the set of one or more forwarding tables; and in response to determining that the flow is not yet being learnt, performing: 1) updating a retrieved flow learning element to include a second portion of a flow identification, 2) sending a request to store the updated flow learning element into a flow learning table, and 3) in response to determining that the updated flow learning element is stored, sending a request to insert a new entry associated with the flow of the packet in a forwarding table.
