Traffic splitting is a required functionality in networks, for example for load balancing over paths or servers, or by the source's access restrictions. The capacities of the servers (or the number of users with particular access restrictions) determine the sizes of the parts into which traffic should be split. A recent approach implements traffic splitting within the ternary content addressable memory (TCAM), which is often available in switches. It is important to reduce the amount of memory allocated for this task since TCAMs are power consuming. We analyze the expected size of a representation, for uniformly random ordered partitions. We show that the expected representation size of a random partition is at least half the size for the worst-case partition, and is linear in the number of parts and in the logarithm of the size of the address space.
