When implementing QOS in openvSwitch there is an option in Conﬁguration for linux-htb QoS : other_conﬁg : priority
The description for this option in the ovs documentation is :
other_conﬁg : priority:optional string, containing an integer, in range 0 to 4,294,967,295 A queue with a smaller priority will receive all the excess bandwidth that it can use before a queue with a larger value receivesany.Speciﬁc priority values are unimportant; only relative ordering matters. Defaults to 0 if unspeciﬁed.
My understanding is this is an option for implementing Priority Queueing. Is this correct ?
And if so, what does the bellow line means exactly ? :
Speciﬁc priority values are unimportant; only relative ordering matters
Any help woud be appreciated.
Thank you .
