A system, method and computer program product are provided for adaptive priority data filtering. Data is collected from a network segment and classified into multiple flows. The flows are prioritized into high and low priority flows. High priority flows are stored in a high priority queue prior to processing, while low priority flows are stored in a low priority queue prior to processing. An amount of data in the high priority flows is monitored. Buffers from the low priority queue are reallocated to the high priority queue if the amount of data in the high priority flows surpasses a predetermined threshold.
