nl-pktloc-lookup - Lookup packet location definitions
nl-pktloc-lookup searches the packet location database for a matching
entry. It is used to resolve packet location aliases to their definition,
i.e. alignment, layer, offset, and mask.
- -h or --help
Print help text to console and exit.
- -v or --version
Print versioning information to console and exit.
- -l or --list
List all packet location definitions.
Prints the packet location definition in a special format that is
understood by iproute2's u32 selector parser. It will output a
u32 selector which will compare the provided value with the value
specified by the packet location.
Please note that due to the limitation of u32, it is not possible
to use packet locations based on the link layer. nl-pktloc-lookup
will print an error message in this case.
selector=$(nl-pktloc-lookup --u32 22 tcp.sport)
tc filter add [...] u32 match $(selector) flowid 1:2
