tc filter ... fw [ classid CLASSID ] [ action ACTION_SPEC ]
the fw filter allows to classify packets based on a previously set
fwmark by iptables. If it is identical to the filter's handle, the
filter matches. iptables allows to mark single packets with the MARK
target, or whole connections using CONNMARK. The benefit of using this
filter instead of doing the heavy-lifting with tc itself is that on one
hand it might be convenient to keep packet filtering and classification
in one place, possibly having to match a packet just once, and on the
other users familiar with iptables but not tc will have a less hard
time adding QoS to their setups.
Push matching packets to the class identified by CLASSID.
Apply an action from the generic actions framework on matching
Take e.g. the following tc filter statement:
tc filter add ... handle 6 fw classid 1:1
will match if the packet's fwmark value is 6. This is a sample ipta-
bles statement marking packets coming in on eth0:
iptables -t mangle -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -j MARK --set-mark 6
