Root Queen

  • Hello,
    I am deploying QoS. Can you tell me if root queue being near the limit is a problem?

  • I've always found these graphs to be inaccurate as a gauge of traffic.  Even the traffic rate on this screen can be misleading. What you want to look at is dropped packets.  It looks like you have 4 dropped packets in the picture.  The queues will only drop packets when they get full and reach the end of their queue length.  BTW, a 5 packet Queue length is not very much of a shaping buffer for most things unless you want to have packets dropped almost immediately when the limit is hit for the queue.

    Others have said that looking at the shaper through the terminal screen are more accurate.

    I hope this helps in your understanding.
