High latency when using limiters
Hi, I'm new here and I can't seem to find any solution to my problem for so long so I decided to post hoping that somebody could help or give me suggestions.
I'm having problems regarding limiter. I have a single WAN with 5/1 speed and currently using pfsense 2.1.5 since squid transparent and limiter don't work on newer versions. I'm using PRIQ right now to make shaping simple instead of using HFSC. I don't have any floating rule problems regarding on where I want my packets to go so it really is all about my limiter. Whenever my ISP(5mbps) is fully saturated, my latency increases a bit especially on gaming (league of legends) increases by 10ms or (csgo) increases by 30ms. The shaping of my ISP is quite good but I want it to have a feel like no one is hogging my bandwidth even if fully saturated but to achieve that, I need to cap my ISP speeds to 4mbps/850kbps but when I'm using the limiter, I got very worse latencies (around 300ms). I've been using a router with tomato firmware and it also has an option to cap my wan speeds without increasing latency so I thought pfsense has the same implementation but I found out it was different so I'm running out of options. Can someone help or give suggestions? It will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
After fiddling through other options, I managed to throttle my speeds without suffering high latencies from limiter by using CBQ scheduler. Hoping this may help other users. Thanks!
The limiter won't help because the limiter doesn't manage buffer bloat. HFSC works great for me, 0ms increase in latency during saturation.
