Gr. HansT.,

I appreciate the feedback. I am in the process of coding a new dshaper.
The current Dshaper works well in my environment and wasn't originally
meant for m0n0wall, but does look like it could be a usefull feature to
the m0n0wall project. Your shaper-help modifications does make the
understanding of Dshaper more user friendly, and with a few additions,
I'll add it to the site.

Anyone interested in making mods to the scripts, are free to do so.
Surprise me if you like.

Thanks,

Junior

Junior,

Traffic shaping at the mean traffic level is the way to go.

So, I like the idea of Dshaper because it serves two purposes:
1 - to implement a fair use policy based at a reasonable level of mean
traffic
2 - to allow users to burst at maximum bandwidth during an configurable
time-frame

This is my understanding after looking at the code, but, in my opinion,
the implementation is not (yet) mature enough to be included in
m0n0wall.
That's because the configuration is unnecessary complex and the
shaper-help confuses me in understanding what it does. I will give
personal feedback on this later, to start further discussion.

I think it's better to skip a variable in the GUI-configuration and have
a close look at how to describe the burst characteristics (i.e. timing).
That hopefully makes it easier to use.

Gr. HansT.
