vlan — vlan manipulation module

Synopsis

tc ... action vlan { pop | PUSH } [ CONTROL ]
PUSH := push [ protocol VLANPROTO ] id VLANID
CONTROL := { reclassify | pipe | drop | continue | pass }

Description

The vlan action allows to perform 802.1Q en- or decapsulation on a packet, reflected by the two operation modes POP and PUSH. The POP mode is simple, as no further information is required to just drop the outer-most VLAN encapsulation. The PUSH mode on the other hand requires at least a VLANID and allows to optionally choose the VLANPROTO to use.

Options

pop
Decapsulation mode, no further arguments allowed.
push
Encapsulation mode. Requires at least id option.
id VLANID
Specify the VLAN ID to encapsulate into. VLANID is an unsigned 16bit integer, the format is detected automatically (e.g. prefix with '0x' for hexadecimal interpretation, etc.).
protocol VLANPROTO
Choose the VLAN protocol to use. At the time of writing, the kernel accepts only 802.1Q or 802.1ad.
CONTROL

How to continue after executing this action.

reclassify
Restarts classification by jumping back to the first filter attached to this action's parent.
pipe
Continue with the next action, this is the default.
drop
Packet will be dropped without running further actions.
continue
Continue classification with next filter in line.
pass
Return to calling qdisc for packet processing. This ends the classification process.

Examples

The following example encapsulates incoming ICMP packets on eth0 from 10.0.0.2 into VLAN ID 123:

#tc qdisc add dev eth0 handle ffff: ingress
#tc filter add dev eth0 parent ffff: pref 11 protocol ip \
	u32 match ip protocol 1 0xff flowid 1:1 \
	u32 match ip src 10.0.0.2 flowid 1:1 \
	action vlan push id 123

Here is an example of the pop function: Incoming VLAN packets on eth0 are decapsulated and the classification process then restarted for the plain packet:

#tc qdisc add dev eth0 handle ffff: ingress
#tc filter add dev $ETH parent ffff: pref 1 protocol 802.1Q \
	u32 match u32 0 0 flowid 1:1 \
	action vlan pop reclassify
