Description Jan Tluka 2010-07-01 15:46:01 UTC
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

Additional info:

Here's the information that Thomas Graf sent me regarding the net_cls value:

Basically the format is:
where as
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
