Dynamic traffic shaping



  • Hi,
    i have a 10mbit down 1mbit upload connection.
    I share this to 20 users. I want dynamic traffic shaping configuration. As example:
    if one user download with 1mbit and and one with 3 mbit then the 3rd user can use the rest 7 mbit. But if all users try to use full bw can have max speed  totalspeed/active users.
    Can pfsense handle fine this?
    Is any how-to for similar setup?
    I have check the faq and forums but i not have see something similar.
    Thanks



  • Yes it is doable.
    An easy setup is 1 queue for upload/1 for download

    upload queue: type=HFSC bandwidth=1Mb m1=0b d=10 m2=1Mb
    download queue: type=HFSC bandwidth=10Mb m1=0b d=10 m2=10Mb

    This will distribute bandwidth according to number of users.

    hi,
    and this is dymanically?
    So if a user use only 1mbit then the 2nd user can have all the rest 9 mbits?
    Thanks



  • thats the whole point of sharing.

    HFSC = Hierarchical Fair Sharing Curve and what i gave you is its most simple usage.



  • Is it possible to use HFSC when your WAN connection speed is always changing? In other words, is it possible to guarantee 200 kbps for example for your VoIP no matter what, if the speed of the WAN is changing throughout the day (ranging from 512 kpbs up to 10 mpbs)?

    On our internet line, there are times of the day when our internet connection download and uploads drop significantly. I would like to always guarantee that our VOIP traffic flows ahead of any Data traffic for inbound and outbound.

    Any ideas?



  • YEs setup realtime parameter.

    Search the forum there is a thread for Flwless/Seamless VOIP
