This target is an extension of the QUEUE target. As opposed to QUEUE, it allows
you to put a packet into any specific queue, identified by its 16-bit queue
It can only be used with Kernel versions 2.6.14 or later, since it requires
kernel support. The \fBqueue-balance\fP option was added in Linux 2.6.31.
This specifies the QUEUE number to use. Valid queue numbers are 0 to 65535. The default value is 0.
This specifies a range of queues to use. Packets are then balanced across the given queues.
This is useful for multicore systems: start multiple instances of the userspace program on
queues x, x+1, .. x+n and use "\-\-queue\-balance \fIx\fP\fB:\fP\fIx+n\fP".
Packets belonging to the same connection are put into the same nfqueue.
