CONFIG_NET_PKT_TIMESTAMP_THREAD

Create TX timestamp thread

Type: bool

Help

Create a TX timestamp thread that will pass the timestamped network packets to some other module like gPTP for further processing. If you just want to timestamp network packets and get information how long the network packets flow in the system, you can disable the thread support.
