Codelq setup



  • Is this all that is needed for setup? I know codel does not require bandwidth information but pfsense still has that info open.



  • The pfSense shaper tries to support all the shapers with one web form.  This means that sometimes you will see lements that don't apply, such as bandwidth settings for CODEL and PRIQ.  Just ignore them.



  • I'm adding Codelq in 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 (i386) and the interface shows an error message if no bandwidth is entered.

    Is this correct - needs bandwidth?

    Yes. It's a fundamental part of traffic-shaping; whichever device is doing the shaping must be the bandwidth bottleneck. So you need to put in a bandwidth that is lower than your internet connection's top-speed.
