CONFIG_NET_TC_RX_COUNT

How many Rx traffic classes to have for each network device

Type: int

Help

Define how many Rx traffic classes (queues) the system should have when receiving a network packet. The network packet priority can then be mapped to this traffic class so that higher prioritized packets can be processed before lower prioritized ones. Each queue is handled by a separate thread which will need RAM for stack space. Only increase the value from 1 if you really need this feature. The default value is 1 which means that all the network traffic is handled equally. In this implementation, the higher traffic class value corresponds to lower thread priority.
