Attempting Traffic Shaping on multiple interfaces.



  • Other than the wizard not supporting it, I can't find any reason why pfSense would not support it.

    So I am manually adding my rules/queues in to see what happens.

    Here is the link to my post on my network setup.

  • Will not work.  Backend code is not 100% completed for multiple interface shaping.



  • when it will be completed?
    Right now i'm using 4 WANs and I have a problem to manage bit-torrent traffic from some users.  :'( :'( :'(



  • This won't appear in 1.0. You'll have to wait for 1.1 which will feature some huge changes of the way interfaces are handled at the backend to support all this.

    Even then, there's no guarantee :)  The interface rewrite is a large enough change that I'm probably going to end up creating a branch for that work as I'll be touching a LOT of code.  Unless someone else works on it (leon maybe), I doubt 1.1 will get any huge shaper improvements (not if we want to release 1.1 in under a year).

  • Btw, talking about features of 1.1 is a look in the crystal ball anyway and highly speculative. This doesn't only apply to the feature mentioned in this thread.



  • If you have multiple interface, One WAN and the rest has been bridged with LAN, will then Trafic shaper Work ?

    I could take a look in that direction. but not in the very near future, unfortunately I can't find a lot of free time on my hands ATM. probably a month or so down the road when my work load reduces to nothing. hopefully.



  • This would also be useful for me..

    But one of the lines can be shaped still right, which is better than none, if VoiP could be forced down the shaped line, UNLESS the shaped line is down, then that'd be fine.
