I am doing some work relate to limit income bandwidth (ingress) of a NIC in Ubuntu 16.04. Seem like we cannot limit the income bandwidth directly but have to use IFB. In this this post we have a good tutorial using IFB to finish the job. I followed it an successed.
But I wonder if there is someway to create IFB with a name or id. Instead of:
modprobe ifb numifbs=n
Can I create an IFB with name such as
create ifb name="ifb_1"
Lately, sometime I would need to delete it and an ID is necessary.
I need to do some programmatical job with it and
modprobe ifb numifbs=n not seem to be convenient for my coding job.
