Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 610139
incorrect net_cls example in Resource Management Guide
Last modified: 2010-11-11 10:35:54 EST
Description of problem:
Section 1.7. Net_cls
net_cls.classid contains a single value in hexadecimal format that indicates a traffic control handle. For example, 0x1001 represents the handle conventionally written as 10:1.
This is incorrect. 0x1001 does not represent 10:1. The value for 10:1 should be 0x100001.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
manual's identifier: doc-Resource_Management_Guide and version number: 6
Here's the information that Thomas Graf sent me regarding the net_cls value:
Basically the format is:
AAAA is the major number in hex format
BBBB is the minor number in hex format
This equals to AAAA:BBBB in iproute2 format.
1:1 -> 0x00010001
22:22 -> 0x00220022
