Deduplication

Advanced FPGA-based Host CPU Offload

Most network monitoring appliances receive a significant number of duplicate packets; sometimes as high as 50% of all traffic. This is often because a SPAN port is configured to copy ingress and egress data from every switch port, which leads to duplicate packets for every packet that goes into and then out of a network switch. ANIC adapters can discard all duplicate packets in hardware before they ever reach the host application, thus saving a tremendous number of wasted processing cycles.
