manpage for tc needs info on filters
Last modified: 2016-11-03 19:36:47 EDT
Iproute on rhel-7 needs to be updated too. It needs to be consistent with rhel-6.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1093726 +++
Description of problem:
Specifically, there is nothing on handles or cgroups. The See-Also doc site (http://lartc.org) has not at all on cgroups.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The tc manpage last line is:
"iproute2 16 December 2001 TC(8)"
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to learn how stuff works
In the "tc" manpage: See-Also links, or embedded info, for specifics for all the available filters.
A Resource Management Guide chapter on tc would also be good.
There's a link in the reverse direction, from cgroups to tc, in the Resource_Management_Guide (section 3.8: net_cls), which suggests the tc manpage.

A patch series adding man pages for filters has been sent upstream and accepted: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network/384390
This should be trivial: Backport my patch series adding tc filter man pages minus those which don't exist in RHEL7 (if any).
