Change prio for specified traffic, not limiting bandwidth



  • Hi,
    I'm trying to find how to lower the priority of my p2p traffic. I don't want to limit the bandwidth, simply want that the p2p will slow down (upload/download) as soon as any other traffic is active. And when there is no traffic, open the full pipe.
    I can only find information about some kind of HFSC, PRIQ configuring bandwidth limit.
    Is it possible to lower to prio of the traffic itself ?
    Or it's better to lower the prio of the dedicated IP for p2p ?

    Any tutorial to recomend ?

    If you can match that traffic with a firewall rule you can put it in a lower priority queue.

    Or you can match other traffic and put that in a higher priority queue.

    It's most effective for upload though since there you are directly queuing traffic leaving your WAN.
