prompt "Packet scheduler clock source"
depends on NET_SCHED
default NET_SCH_CLK_JIFFIES
help
Packet schedulers need a monotonic clock that increments at a static
rate. The kernel provides several suitable interfaces, each with
different properties:
- high resolution (us or better)
- fast to read (minimal locking, no i/o access)
- synchronized on all processors
- handles cpu clock frequency changes
but nothing provides all of the above.
config NET_SCH_CLK_JIFFIES
bool "Timer interrupt"
help
Say Y here if you want to use the timer interrupt (jiffies) as clock
source. This clock source is fast, synchronized on all processors and
handles cpu clock frequency changes, but its resolution is too low
for accurate shaping except at very low speed.
config NET_SCH_CLK_GETTIMEOFDAY
bool "gettimeofday"
help
Say Y here if you want to use gettimeofday as clock source. This clock
source has high resolution, is synchronized on all processors and
handles cpu clock frequency changes, but it is slow.
Choose this if you need a high resolution clock source but can't use
the CPU's cycle counter.
config NET_SCH_CLK_CPU
bool "CPU cycle counter"
depends on X86_TSC || X86_64 || ALPHA || SPARC64 || PPC64 || IA64
help
Say Y here if you want to use the CPU's cycle counter as clock source.
This is a cheap and high resolution clock source, but on some
architectures it is not synchronized on all processors and doesn't
handle cpu clock frequency changes.
The useable cycle counters are:
x86/x86_64 - Timestamp Counter
alpha - Cycle Counter
sparc64 - %ticks register
ppc64 - Time base
ia64 - Interval Time Counter
Choose this if your CPU's cycle counter is working properly.

config NET_SCH_CBQ
tristate "CBQ packet scheduler"
depends on NET_SCHED
---help---
Say Y here if you want to use the Class-Based Queueing (CBQ) packet
scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices. This
algorithm classifies the waiting packets into a tree-like hierarchy
of classes; the leaves of this tree are in turn scheduled by
separate algorithms (called "disciplines" in this context).
See the top of <file:net/sched/sch_cbq.c> for references about the
CBQ algorithm.
CBQ is a commonly used scheduler, so if you're unsure, you should
say Y here. Then say Y to all the queueing algorithms below that you
want to use as CBQ disciplines. Then say Y to "Packet classifier
API" and say Y to all the classifiers you want to use; a classifier
is a routine that allows you to sort your outgoing traffic into
classes based on a certain criterion.
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sch_cbq.
config NET_SCH_HTB
tristate "HTB packet scheduler"

Say Y here if you want to use the Hierarchical Token Buckets (HTB)
packet scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices. See

different properties and different algorithm.

module will be called sch_htb.
config NET_SCH_HFSC
tristate "HFSC packet scheduler"

config NET_SCH_ATM
tristate "ATM pseudo-scheduler"
depends on NET_SCHED && ATM
---help---
Say Y here if you want to use the ATM pseudo-scheduler. This
provides a framework for invoking classifiers (aka "filters"), which
in turn select classes of this queuing discipline. Each class maps
the flow(s) it is handling to a given virtual circuit (see the top of
<file:net/sched/sch_atm.c>).
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sch_atm.

packet scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices or as a
leaf discipline for the CBQ scheduling algorithm (see the top of
<file:net/sched/sch_sfq.c> for details and references about the SFQ
algorithm).
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sch_sfq.
config NET_SCH_TEQL
tristate "TEQL queue"
depends on NET_SCHED
---help---
Say Y here if you want to use the True Link Equalizer (TLE) packet
scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices or as a leaf
discipline for the CBQ scheduling algorithm. This queueing
discipline allows the combination of several physical devices into
one virtual device. (see the top of <file:net/sched/sch_teql.c> for
details).
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sch_teql.
config NET_SCH_TBF
tristate "TBF queue"
depends on NET_SCHED
help
Say Y here if you want to use the Simple Token Bucket Filter (TBF)
packet scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices or as a
leaf discipline for the CBQ scheduling algorithm (see the top of

module will be called sch_tbf.
config NET_SCH_GRED

(RED) packet scheduling algorithm for some of your network devices

RFCs, is available at <http://www.gta.ufrj.br/diffserv/>.

module will be called sch_dsmark.
config NET_SCH_NETEM
tristate "Network emulator"
depends on NET_SCHED
help
Say Y if you want to emulate network delay, loss, and packet
re-ordering. This is often useful to simulate networks when
testing applications or protocols.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called sch_netem.
If unsure, say N.
config NET_SCH_INGRESS
tristate "Ingress Qdisc"

help
If you say Y here, you will be able to police incoming bandwidth
and drop packets when this bandwidth exceeds your desired rate.
If unsure, say Y.
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called sch_ingress.
config NET_QOS
bool "QoS support"
depends on NET_SCHED
---help---
Say Y here if you want to include Quality Of Service scheduling
features, which means that you will be able to request certain
rate-of-flow limits for your network devices.
This Quality of Service (QoS) support will enable you to use
Differentiated Services (diffserv) and Resource Reservation Protocol
(RSVP) on your Linux router if you also say Y to "Packet classifier
API" and to some classifiers below. Documentation and software is at
<http://diffserv.sourceforge.net/>.
Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the
kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
the questions about QoS support.
config NET_ESTIMATOR
bool "Rate estimator"
depends on NET_QOS
help
In order for Quality of Service scheduling to work, the current
rate-of-flow for a network device has to be estimated; if you say Y
here, the kernel will do just that.
config NET_CLS
bool "Packet classifier API"
depends on NET_SCHED
---help---
The CBQ scheduling algorithm requires that network packets which are
scheduled to be sent out over a network device be classified
according to some criterion. If you say Y here, you will get a
choice of several different packet classifiers with the following
questions.
This will enable you to use Differentiated Services (diffserv) and
Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) on your Linux router.
Documentation and software is at
<http://diffserv.sourceforge.net/>.
config NET_CLS_TCINDEX

tc filter add dev eth0 protocol ip parent 1:0 prio 5 u32 \
match mark 0x0090 0xffff \
match ip dst 4.4.4.4 \

config NET_CLS_RSVP
tristate "Special RSVP classifier"
