SKB editing action in tc(8)                             Linux                             SKB editing action in tc(8)

       skbedit - SKB editing action

       tc ... action skbedit [ queue_mapping QUEUE_MAPPING ] [ priority PRIORITY ] [ mark MARK ]

       The skbedit action allows to change a packet's associated meta data. It complements the pedit action, which in
       turn allows to change parts of the packet data itself.

       The most unique feature of skbedit is it's ability to decide over which queue of an  interface  with  multiple
       transmit  queues  the  packet is to be sent out. The number of available transmit queues is reflected by sysfs
       entries within /sys/class/net/<interface>/queues with name tx-N (where N is the actual queue number).

       queue_mapping QUEUE_MAPPING
              Override the packet's transmit queue. Useful when applied to packets transmitted over  MQ-capable  net‐
              work interfaces.  QUEUE_MAPPING is an unsigned 16bit value in decimal format.

       priority PRIORITY
              Override  the  packet  classification  decision.   PRIORITY is either root, none or a hexadecimal major
              class ID optionally followed by a colon (:) and a hexadecimal minor class ID.

       mark MARK
              Change the packet's firewall mark value.  MARK is an unsigned 32bit  value  in  automatically  detected
              format (i.e., prefix with '0x' for hexadecimal interpretation, etc.).
