+Match by how many bytes or packets a connection (or one of the two
+flows constituting the connection) have tranferred so far, or by
+average bytes per packet.
+The counters are 64bit and are thus not expected to overflow ;)
+The primary use is to detect long-lived downloads and mark them to be
+scheduled using a lower priority band in traffic control.
+The transfered bytes per connection can also be viewed through
+/proc/net/ip_conntrack and accessed via ctnetlink

+match packets from a connection whose packets/bytes/average packet

+falling in the range.

+only in one direction (for example HTTP), the average packet size will
+be about half of the actual data packets.
