I have a slight grasp of pipes vs queues but I would like to
verify I am heading in the right direction. The online manual is
rather...empty...in this area.
My goal is to enable certain hosts to have bandwidth limits, for
Host A - 256 kb
Host B - 512 kb
Host C - 1024 kb
Total bandwidth available - 1024 kb
I understand there are issues if all three are active, but let's pretend
for now Host C is not doing anything. To limit the other two hosts, am
I right that I need to set up three pipes, one for each bandwidth level?
Then set up rules to have something like:
DNS/small packets - pipe C
traffic from Host A - pipe A
traffic from Host B - pipe B
traffic from Host C - pipe C
Any insight/advice? Thanks...
