Claim of US Patent No. 9,407,447

1. A multicast message replication method, comprising:
step 1. storing a received message in a message cache module, and an inter-port replication module acquiring a cache address of
the message, inter-port replication information of the message, and inner-port replication information of the message, replicating
the cache address according to the inter-port replication information, and transmitting the replicated cache address and the
corresponding inner-port replication information to a port queue module to be stored;

step 2. a port scheduling module scheduling the cache addresses of the port queue module, and under scheduling by the port scheduling
module, the port queue module outputting a cache address for which message replication needs to be performed according to
the stored corresponding inner-port replication information; and

step 3. the message cache module reading a corresponding message according to the cache address output by the port queue module
and outputs the corresponding message.
