simple - basic example action

Simple action in tc(8) Linux Simple action in tc(8)

NAME

simple - basic example action

SYNOPSIS


tc ... action simple STRING

DESCRIPTION

This is a pedagogical example rather than an actually useful action. Upon every access, it prints the given STRING which may be of arbitrary length.

OPTIONS

STRING
The actual string to print.

EXAMPLES

The following example makes the kernel yell "Incoming ICMP!" every time it sees an incoming ICMP on eth0. Steps are:
1)
Add an ingress qdisc point to eth0
2)
Start a chain on ingress of eth0 that first matches ICMP then invokes the simple action to shout.
3)
display stats and show that no packet has been seen by the action
4)
Send one ping packet to google (expect to receive a response back)
5)
grep the logs to see the logged message
6)
display stats again and observe increment by 1
