Inspect queues in realtime



  • Hello

    Is it possible to see what is passing by any queue (of traffic shaping)?

    I have 7 queues, and about 20 rules to route my home traffic through them. It is quite difficult to be sure I did a good job ;-)

    Is there a nice way to see "live" what goes through any queue? I already know the stat page, but that does gives me only a glance. I would like to see: traffic TCP from IP blablabla to IP blablabla is on Queue blablabla…

    Thanks for your support (and your great product, by the way)



  • You can try out CACTI perhaps.



  • Do isolation testing.  Restrict all access to just one protocol and then see if that traffic is routed to the proper queue.

    @Nullity:

    You can use tcpdump on pflog and see what rule matches each packet, assuming logging is enabled.

    something like "tcpdump -lnettti pflog0".

    I usually use pftop via terminal/SSH.

    Check out OpenBSD's pf documentation. The lesser known features can usually be found there.
