1. In an apparatus comprising a plurality of interfaces, each of said interfaces interconnected with an associated data path capable of transferring data a towards a remote destination, each of said data paths having predetermined parameters associated therewith stored in a memory and variable parameters associated therewith, a method of servicing the data by examining the data and determining which of said plurality of data paths should be utilized for transferring the data towards the remote destination, said method comprising:

  • defining one or more first variable parameters for use in examining the data;

    receiving the data;

    examining the received data;

    identifying the examined data which matches said one of the one or more first variable parameters;

    analyzing a property of the identified data to be transferred;

    measuring a second variable parameter for at least one path;

    analyzing said measured second variable parameter and said predetermined parameters;

    determining which of said paths provides an optimal set of characteristics for transferring the data towards the remote destination in accordance with said analyzed second variable parameter, predetermined parameters, and analyzed data property; and

    transferring the identified data to the remote destination.
