We are a student group from the university of Science and Engineering in Norway, and are having a project on handling large data sets and specifically Wiresharks issues with it. I have included part of our prestudy into the problem as an attachment, and we are wondering if anybody has som immediate thoughts regarding our plans for a sollution.
It's been a while, but my memory says that while memory-mapped files are 
great, *growing* memory mapped files was (significantly) less pleasant. 
 Since Wireshark's allocations tend to be incremental, how would you 
plan to deal with that?
