+.SH QEVENTS
+Qdiscs may invoke user-configured actions when certain interesting events
+take place in the qdisc. Each qevent can either be unused, or can have a
+block attached to it. To this block are then attached filters using the "tc
+block BLOCK_IDX" syntax. The block is executed when the qevent associated
+with the attachment point takes place. For example, packet could be
+dropped, or delayed, etc., depending on the qdisc and the qevent in
+question.
+
+For example:
+.PP
+.RS
+tc qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 1: red limit 500K avpkt 1K \\
+   qevent early_drop block 10
