Napatech Software Suite: Port Merge

Port merge is a feature that the Napatech adapters can handle inside the adapter with no CPU cost. The adapter time stamps packets when they arrive and ensures they are in a time stamp order. Port merging in the adapter is automatically made via NTPL whenever possible, otherwise it will fall back to software-based merging.

Note
  • The port merge feature is not applied when running the In-line profile
