Working with TC on Linux systems – dasblinkenlichten

With that out of the way – I wanted to spend some time in this post talking about the command line tool found on systems called tc. We’ve talked about tc before when we discussed creating some /traffic simulated topologies and it worked awesome for that use case. If you recall from that earlier post tc is short for Traffic Control and allows users to configure qdiscs. A qdisc is short for Queuing Discipline. I like to think of it as manipulating the Linux kernels packet scheduler.
