 switch rule depends on its pattern/action. If a rule is supported by switch or fdir at the same time, it
 will be created in the fdir table first. Therefore, to test switch filter in non-pipeline mode, we need to
 fill the fdir table first, and then the rules are created in the switch filter table. The capacity of fdir

-Action type
------------
+.. note::
+
+   1. The maximum input set length of a switch rule is 32 bytes, and src ipv6,
+      dst ipv6 account for 32 bytes. Therefore, for ipv6 cases, if need to test
+      fields other than src, dst ip, we create rule by removing src or dst ip in
+      the test plan.
+
+   2. For MAC_IPV4_TUN_IPV4_FRAG/MAC_IPV4_TUN_IPV4_PAY cases and
+      MAC_IPV4_TUN_MAC_IPV4_FRAG/MAC_IPV4_TUN_MAC_IPV4_PAY cases, the input set
+      of each pair is the same, so use MAC_IPV4_TUN_IPV4 and MAC_IPV4_TUN_MAC_IPV4
+      pattern to replace them in the test plan.
