A brief report on what numbers should be included in the paper was written. Further work on what is actually a novel contribution is required.
Two analyses of the relationship between next hop address and flow ID were carried out. These two parameters were plotted against each other, in order to scan for patterns.
An initial analysis of port bit and segregation into successor groups of packets was carried out. Further validation of these results is required. The analysis determining if the first link group of packets of a load balancer set the same bit to the same value. If it did comparison with the other links was carried out and if a link group which set the bit the other way was found, then the count for that bit was incremented. This is a slightly over-simplified approach as only one link group is compared to the others. As it is, it does run quite fast.
