Lightweight packet timestamping

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hello everybody,
I'm implementing a token bucket algorithm to apply rate limit to traffic and I need the timestamp of packets to update the bucket. To get this information I'm using the bpf_ktime_get_ns() helper but I've discovered it has a non negligible impact on performance. I've seen there is work in progress to make hardware timestamps available to XDP programs, but I don't know if this feature is already available. Is there a faster way to retrieve this information?
Thanks for your attention.
