It should be not so difficult to isolate or tag all traffic coming
from this process, to make it lowest priority.


apparently, these can be tagged with priorities:

  Priority Code Point (PCP): a 3-bit field which refers to the IEEE
  802.1p priority. It indicates the frame priority level from 0
  (lowest) to 7 (highest), which can be used to prioritize different
  classes of traffic (voice, video, data, etc).
