Thanks for the info Jasvinder. I see there is an internal timer to see when
to refill the token buckets and credits.  I have read the QOS  document.
My understanding is that the DPDK code is using the same HQOS thread CPU
context to implement timer functionality during the pipe selection and not
leveraging on Linux timers or other timers.

Satish Amara
