IEEE 802.1Qav

Overview

Credit-based shaping is an alternative scheduling algorithm used in network schedulers to achieve fairness when sharing a limited network resource. Zephyr has support for configuring a credit-based shaper described in the IEEE 802.1Qav-2009 standard. Zephyr does not implement the actual shaper; it only provides a way to configure the shaper implemented by the Ethernet device driver.
