Managing NIC Rings

On NICs, receive (Rx) rings and transmit (Tx) rings are hardware resources through which the system receives and sends network packets, respectively. By managing and allocating rings according to the network traffic, you increase the system's efficiency for processing packets. For example, you can allocate more number of receive (Rx) rings for a link that is receiving more packets.
