[Winpcap-users] Write packets to disk using pcap_dump

Using winpcap my application receives Layer 2 JUMBO packets.

Each packet should be written to a disk.

The input data should be ~5Gb/sec

The max. input rate to the disk can be 10Gb/sec so the disk rate is not an issue. 

Can I be sure that using “pcap_dump(dumpfile, header, pkt_data);” wil do the work in this rate ?

According to my knowledge, writing 4MB each time has better performance. 

Thank you,
