Solaris 10 UDP kstat counters

What is the difference between ip_udp_fast_path and ip_udp_slow_path? Also, does anyone know a way to see the amount of UDP buffer in use?

Thanks.

    It's fast if the incoming packet gets a hit in the packet classifier (e.g. we have
    bound endpoint which matches port, address) and we can immediately find the correct
    conn_t to handle the packet.

    It's slow if we have to look harder for the conn_t to deliver the packet.

    This may seem a little bit vague but this is implementation specific with conditions
    that are subject to change.
