16. A method operable with a plurality of applications connected through a programmable switch comprising:
selecting traffic flows to ones of said plurality of applications;
monitoring and collecting statistics for said traffic flows to determine rule level statistics;
moving, based on said rule level statistics, at least one traffic flow of said traffic flows from a network interface to a different network interface, the different network interface comprising a new NIC or a new virtual function; and
moving, to the new NIC or the new virtual function, rules for the traffic flows, such that rules for one type of traffic flow are not co-located with rules for another type of traffic flow.
