Re: Black hole
but that doesn't let you use a classifier to decide what you want
to blackhole, which may be potentially useful. For example, if you just
wanted to blackhole IRC traffic to the average user. That would require
a small change to sch_api and tc. I think that was the original intent
of the question since Hiu referred to a traffic grouping which implies
something more arbitrary than a network.
Of course, both these things can also be achieved with the firewall code.
