NAME
       actions - independently defined actions in tc

SYNOPSIS
       tc [ TC_OPTIONS ] actions add | change | replace ACTSPEC

       tc [ TC_OPTIONS ] actions get | delete ACTISPEC

       tc [ TC_OPTIONS ] actions flush ACTNAMESPEC

       tc [ TC_OPTIONS ] actions ls | list ACTNAMESPEC [ ACTFILTER ]

               ACTSPEC := action ACTDETAIL [ INDEXSPEC ] [ COOKIESPEC ] [ CON-
               TROL ]

               ACTISPEC := ACTNAMESPEC INDEXSPEC

               ACTNAMESPEC := action ACTNAME

               INDEXSPEC := index INDEX

               ACTFILTER := since MSTIME

               COOKIESPEC := cookie COOKIE

               ACTDETAIL := ACTNAME ACTPARAMS

               ACTNAME may be any valid action type: gact, mirred, bpf,  conn-
               mark, csum, police, etc.

               MSTIME Time since last update.

               CONTROL := { reclassify | pipe | drop | continue | ok }

               TC_OPTIONS  These  are  the options that are specific to tc and
               not only the options. Refer to tc(8) for more information.

DESCRIPTION
       The actions object in tc allows a user to define actions  independently
       of  a classifier (filter). These actions can then be assigned to one or
       more filters, with any packets matching the classifier's criteria  hav-
       ing that action performed on them.

       Each  action  type  (mirred,  police,  etc.) will have its own table to
       store all created actions.

OPERATIONS
       add    Create a new action in that action's table.

       change
       replace
              Make modifications to an existing action.

       get    Display the action with the specified index value. When combined
              with  the  -s  option  for  tc,  display the statistics for that
              action.

       delete Delete the action with the specified index value. If the  action
              is  already associated with a classifier, it does not delete the
              classifier.

       ls
       list   List all the actions in the specified table. When combined  with
              the  -s option for tc, display the statistics for all actions in
              the specified table.  When combined with the option since allows
              doing  a  millisecond  time-filter since the last time an action
              was used in the datapath.

       flush  Delete all actions stored in the specified table.

ACTION OPTIONS
       Note that these options are available to all action types.

       index INDEX
              Specify the table index value of an action.  INDEX is  a  32-bit
              value that is unique to the specific type of action referenced.

              For  add, change, and replace operations, the index is optional.
              When adding a new action, specifying an index value will  assign
              the  action  to  that  index unless that index value has already
              been assigned. Omitting the index value  for  an  add  operation
              will cause the kernel to assign a value to the new action.

              For get and delete operations, the index is required to identify
              the specific action to be displayed or deleted.

       cookie COOKIE
              In addition to the specific action,  mark  the  matching  packet
              with  the  value  specified  by COOKIE.  The COOKIE is a 128-bit
              value that will not be interpreted by the kernel whatsoever.  As
              such, it can be used as a correlating value for maintaining user
              state.  The value to be stored is completely arbitrary and  does
              not  require  a  specific format. It is stored inside the action
              structure itself.

       since MSTIME
              When dumping large number of actions, a millisecond  time-filter
              can  be  specified  MSTIME.   The  MSTIME is a millisecond count
              since last time a packet hit the action.  As an example specify-
              ing  "since  20000"  implies  to dump all actions that have seen
              packets in the last 20 seconds. This option is useful  when  the
              kernel has a large number of actions and you are only interested
              in recently used actions.

       CONTROL
              The CONTROL indicates how tc should proceed after executing  the
              action. Any of the following are valid:

              reclassify
                     Restart  the  classifiction  by jumping back to the first
                     filter attached to the action's parent.

              pipe   Continue with the next action. This is the  default  con-
                     trol.

              drop   Drop the packed without running any further actions.

              continue
                     Continue the classification with the next filter.

              pass   Return  to  the  calling qdisc for packet processing, and
                     end classification of this packet.
