Thanks for the info. I was going to go down the road of doing this but
as I was reading this article
http://m0n0.ch/wall/list/showmsg.php?id=49/99 by Adam Nelleman.
He mentioned that Queues only allocate more of a pipes bandwidth, it
does not up the processing priority. Have I read/understood this correctly?
/"While I guess a queue has an effect merely by existing (and being used of course), they really
into their right when you assign a different "Weight" to a number of queues using the same pipe (at
least I think the latter is a requirement?) In this case the the queues are prioritised in such a
manner that the queue with the *highest weight get more of the pipes bandwidth* (while always
ensuring that all queues get their share, even if a queue with a higher weight has packets waiting,
thus the use of "weight" rather than "priority")."/
