Based on what I read recently about the traffic shaper (thanks for the
link to the article btw!)...
A few cosmetic ideas for the traffic shaper:
* Ability to rearrange pipes and queues
This is purely cosmetic. If I want to group a bunch of pipes or queues
that are currently interspersed among others, I'd like to be able to do
so. Maybe using the up/down arrows or something similar to the new
firewall rules page.
Additionally, "Pipe n" and "Queue n" would be un-necessary for
pipes/queues with descriptions. For those that don't, the "Pipe n"
format would be sufficient. This would prevent rearranged pipes and
queues from having their numbers out of order!
* Traffic shaping rule management similar to that of firewall
I like the new firewall management stuff. So for the traffic shaper, a
tab for each interface would be nice, along with the check boxes and
"move before this rule" button.
* Ability to link aliases to DHCP host names?
This one's a bit tougher, I'd imagine. I use DHCP just because it means
I don't have to enter an IP manually on each PC and can give PCs new IPs
should I want to. Overkill, maybe! But anyway...
For each host with a static DHCP assignment, I have an entry in the DHCP
server section of m0n0wall. I also have an entry in the firewall aliases
section, with corresponding details.
It'd be great if somehow these two could be linked together so there's
not duplicate information (hostname + IP) in each.
Ditto for Wake on LAN stuff?
* Ability to rearrange static DHCP lease table + alias table, etc.
Again, would be nice to re-order the hosts, maybe in order of IP? Or
selectable "order by name", "order by IP", etc.?
Just a few ideas, not really important. But I'm a perfectionist ;) lol
