class byteblowerll.byteblower.FrameTagRx(*args, **kwargs)

The FrameTagRx class describes the receive configuration of a Tag in a Frame.

ByteBlower supports optional tagging of frames. Such a tag can have different formats, locations, … These parameters can be set and retrieved using this class.

Currently, two different types of FrameTags are supported:

  • Sequence Number: A tag which contains the sequence number within the stream.
  • Timestamp: A tag containing the timestamp this frame has left the transmit interface.

Adding tags is a very powerful and flexible feature of ByteBlower. Please have a look at ByteBlower API Knowledgebase: Background: Adding FrameTags to your ByteBlower frame - structure and behaviour for a detailed explanation.

This class is represents the FrameTag configuration at the receiving side of the flow.

In typical situations this configuration must not be changed.
