Bug : Traffic Shape -> PRIQ bug in pfsense 2.3 ?


  • I have tested "traffic shape" -> "PRIQ" in both pfsense 2.3 and pfsense 2.2.6 , and i found that :

    In 2.3 :

    PRIQ -> Priority can NOT set bigger than 7 , web GUI won't let you set it .

    In 2.2.6 :

    PRIQ -> Priority can set to 1 ~ 15 .

    But according to document , PRIQ's Priority can be set between 1 ~ 15 !

    So , fiinally , i choose 2.2.6 be my production version ; but i like 2.3 Web GUI Interface !

    Is it a bug in 2.3 ? or what did i miss ?


  • If you need more than a few PRIQ priorities, then you should not use PRIQ…

    Read the "Cons" section. (Starvation)

    You may have a legitimate bug, but the bigger issue is that you should not be using PRIQ.
    Use CBQ, FAIRQ, or HFSC.
