Is Queue Overload a common problem in Traffic Shaping?



  • Hi everyone,

    While back, I setup traffic shaping on a router to allow dedicated Bandwidth to Phones. After a month of being in service, the pfsense router started slugging. The Data subnet would not allow any data to go through because there was a huge Queue for traffic shaping. This happened over time and not all a sudden which makes me believe there was something wrong with my config and the environment. So, I had to restart and get rid of the traffic shapper. Now, I need to put Traffic Shaping in again but I don't want to face the same problem.

    If anyone has experience with this please guide me.

    Thanks
