these are bytes which make up the remaining 64 bytes of information within a frame if that frame does not contain actual data.

the minimum ethernet frame is 64 bytes, but not all of it has to be actual data. if the frame is less than 64 bytes, the sending NIC will add extra data - a pad- to fill in the remaining bytes.
