Abstract

See full text

Method and apparatus of separating packets. Specifically, a method of separating data packets in a memory buffer is disclosed. The method locates a memory buffer containing a pre-selected address at a buffer header of the memory buffer. A first data packet containing the buffer header is separated from a remaining part of the memory buffer. The first data packet is associated with a first packet length. The method then searches the remaining part of the memory buffer to locate a plurality of packet headers associated with a plurality of concatenated data packets. Each of the plurality of packet headers contains the pre-selected address. The method then separates the plurality of concatenated data packets, that is associated with a plurality of concatenated packet lengths, for processing.
