New in version 2.2.
- Identifies the 8-bit differentiated services field (as defined in RFC 2474). The optional dsfield_mask is used to state the bits of interest in the differentiated services field when comparing with the dsfield value. Both values must be in hexadecimal.
Specifiies a link to configure flow on.
Identifies a network flow by the local IP address.
Identifies a service specified by the local port.
- Sets the full duplex bandwidth for the flow. The bandwidth is specified as an integer with one of the scale suffixes(K, M, or G for Kbps, Mbps, and Gbps). If no units are specified, the input value will be read as Mbps.
- A flow is defined as a set of attributes based on Layer 3 and Layer 4 headers, which can be used to identify a protocol, service, or a zone.
Sets the relative priority for the flow.
Identifies a network flow by the remote IP address.
Create/delete/enable/disable an IP address on the network interface.
Specifies that the configured flow is temporary. Temporary flows do not persist across reboots.
- Specifies a Layer 4 protocol to be used. It is typically used in combination with local_port to identify the service that needs special attention.

|maxbw||flow's maximum bandwidth||if maxbw is defined||string||100M|
|local_Ip||flow's local IP address||if local_ip is defined||string||10.0.0.42|
|local_port||flow's local port||if local_port is defined||int||1337|
|priority||flow's priority||if priority is defined||string||low|
|state||state of the target||always||string||present|
|link||flow's link||if link is defined||string||vnic0|
|transport||flow's transport||if transport is defined||string||tcp|
|remote_Ip||flow's remote IP address||if remote_ip is defined||string||10.0.0.42|
This module is flagged as preview which means that it is not guaranteed to have a backwards compatible interface.
