how to set skb->priority of ARP packets – A server stack is the collection of software that forms the operational infrastructure on a given machine. In a computing context, a stack is an ordered pile. A server stack is one type of solution stack — an ordered selection of software that makes it possible to complete a particular task. Like in this post about how to set skb->priority of ARP packets was one problem in server stack that need for a solution. Below are some tips in manage your linux server when you find problem about linux, networking, routing, vlan, arp.

As the title already specifies, I’m looking for a way to set the linux skb->priority of outgoing ARP packets of a given interface on my linux machine that is used as a router.

The skb priority is ultimately used to set the IEEE 802.1Q priority through the egress priority map.

For regular IP/TCP/UDP traffic setting the priority is normally easy enough as it can be set through iptables (-j CLASSIFY --set-class), cgroups (net_prio), or others, but for the ARP traffic I’m a bit lost.

I think etables with vlan module could be used to specify 802.1Q Tag Control Information fields


vlan module is for matching packets not for setting priority
