Abstract: A method and a system in a distributed data processing network for enhancing the processing of a plurality of related data packets received at a receiving station within the distributed data processing network, each of the data packets having a header associated herewith includes sequentially receiving a number of data packets at the receiving station. Next, the header associated with a first data packet is examined and predicted profile is generated for comparison with a related subsequent data packet. The next data packet received is then compared with the predicted profile to determine whether or not the two data packets may be consolidated.
