Dummy interface for software bridge.
type error = private [>
The type for network interface errors.
Disconnect from the network device. While this might take some time to complete, it can never result in an error.
write net ~size fill allocates a buffer of length
size must not exceed the interface maximum packet size (
mtu plus Ethernet header). The allocated buffer is zeroed and passed to the
fill function which returns the payload length, which may not exceed the length of the buffer. When
fill returns, a sub buffer is put on the wire: the allocated buffer from index 0 to the returned length.
listen ~header_size net fn waits for a
packet with size at most
header_size + mtu on the network device. When a
packet is received, an asynchronous task is created in which
fn packet is called. The ownership of
packet is transferred to
fn. The function can be stopped by calling
val mtu : t -> int
mtu net is the Maximum Transmission Unit of
net. This excludes the Ethernet header.
val get_stats_counters : t -> Mirage_net.stats
Obtain the most recent snapshot of the interface statistics.
val reset_stats_counters : t -> unit
Reset the statistics associated with this interface to their defaults.
