Traffic Shaping with guarantee speed



  • I used the traffic wizard and the queues are working. I need a guarantee speed to the OthersL (1Mb) for an ftp client. P2P is the default queue. If I use the default queue with full speed (3Mb) and I start the ftp I can't get more than 300-400Kbps. I set the Real time to 1Mb.
    Moreover I would like the same for the HTTP and I have the same problem.
    What can I do?



  • otherdownL is for otherdownlow as far as priority is concerned.  1 is the lowest 7 is the highest.  If you want high speeds for ftp, first I would move it to othersdownH so not to mess up you low priority queue.  Put HTTP in otherdownH/uph and you should accomplish better what you are looking to do.  Remember if you are using squid, routing port 80 as high priority won't work, because squid pushes it through a different port.  And as a final thought, for a most connections, 400-500 upload isn't that bad, let us know how big your pipe is.



  • Realtime curve should be used only for realtime applications. Don't use it for FTP and HTTP. Use Linkshare curve instead. (Or simply set Bandwidth while the Linkshare fields are left blank.)

    can you describe this better. realtime seems to work well for http etc. if you want
    four queues
    10 Mb bandwidth
    http  max download 10Mb priority 5
    ftp    max download 8Mb priority 4
    vpn    max 5 Mb high priority 6
    all_other max 10 Mb priority 2
    p2p  max 2 Mb priority 1

    how would you laythis out then we presently use realtime for caps and this seems to work ok
