Description Jaroslav Aster 2015-11-30 09:52:40 EST
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)"

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Attempt to learn how stuff works
2.  Fail

Actual results:
  No Info

Expected results:
  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.

Additional info:
  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.

--- Additional comment from Phil Sutter on 2015-10-29 04:58:07 EDT ---

A patch series adding man pages for filters has been sent upstream and accepted: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.network/384390
Comment 1 Phil Sutter 2016-01-21 10:57:54 EST
This should be trivial: Backport my patch series adding tc filter man pages minus those which don't exist in RHEL7 (if any).
