This is old, but a good intro to the concepts


There is a default queue for a pipe, but no way to use WFQ2+ without explicitly
defining queues with weights.  Having a single queue does not seem particularly
useful to me, since the purpose is to assign different weights to traffic sharing
the same pipe.
