Inheritance diagram

The following diagram shows inheritance relationships for this type. Unresolved types are missing from the diagram.


Name Type Description
PacketFilterBase simple module

This is a base module for various packet filter modules. Derived modules must implement a single packet matcher function which determines if a packet is to be passed through or filtered out.


Name Type Default value Description
displayStringTextFormat string "dropped %d/%p pk (%k/%l)"

determines the text that is written on top of the submodule

maxDatarate double nan
maxPacketrate double nan


Name Value Description
display i=block/downarrow
class RateLimiter


Name Direction Size Description
in input
out output


Name Type Unit
packetPushed inet::Packet
packetDropped inet::Packet
packetPopped inet::Packet


Name Title Source Record Unit Interpolation Mode
packetPushed packets pushed count, sum(packetBytes), vector(packetBytes) none
packetDropped packets dropped count, sum(packetBytes), vector(packetBytes) none
packetPopped packets popped count, sum(packetBytes), vector(packetBytes) none
