GigaSMART Adaptive Packet Filtering (APF)

Required License: Adaptive Packet Filtering

Adaptive Packet Filtering (APF) provides filtering on specific encapsulation protocol parameters. Additionally, it has the ability to look beyond the encapsulation protocol parameters into the original (encapsulated) data packet, to filter on source leader in a bidirectional clock relationship (formerly master) and destination IP or Layer 4 port numbers. APF offers the ability to look for content anywhere in the data packet and make intelligent filtering and forwarding decisions.
