Understanding multi-wan traffic shaping logic

  • I have a 1 LAN 2 WAN setup that I've gone through the shaping wizard on.  I looked at the queues after the wizard completed, and the upstream queues made sense.  They were set according to the upload bandwidth of one of the WAN connections.  The download queue on the LAN, however, was equivalent to both WAN connections put together.  This means, of course, that any one stream of data could fully saturate the downstream bandwidth of one of the WAN connections due to there being no shaping affecting it.

    Does that make sense?  It seems like the queuing needs to operate differently on the downstream side to avoid link saturation of any single WAN link.
