It is a classid within the Linux traffic shaper class hierarchy, defined
by using the tc command.
See the Linux traffic shaping howto and related documentation on how to
define traffic shaper classes.
Using the CLASSIFY target in iptables is an alternative method of
classifying packets for the Linux traffic shaper, complementing the
tc filter scheme.
