Solaris 10 What's New

User Selector for Internet Protocol Quality of Service (IPQoS)

This feature is new in the Software Express pilot program and in the Solaris 9 8/03 release. This feature is included in the Solaris 10 3/05 release.

The Solaris IPQoS feature now includes the user selector, which supplements the existing uid selector. The user selector enables you to specify a user name or userID as criteria in a filter clause in the ipqosconf file. Previously, the uid selector only accepted a userID as a value. The following filter clause from an ipqosconf file shows the user selector:

filter {
        name myhost;
        user root;

For information about filters and selectors, refer to the ipqosconf(1M) man page.
