I have noticed a funny thing when using QOS and B/W limiter on the toastman build "v1.28.7476 MIPSR2-Toastman-RT K26 USB VPN" using my Netgear WNR3500L/U/v2.
I have settings limiting both the outbound and inbound data rates for different classes and I have noticed that the inbound limits appears to be ignored when the B/W limiter is enabled (with a default setting and one IP setting). The inbound limits work again when I disable the B/W limiter. Is this normal? I have not tested this with one of the earlier builds but I will return when I get around to it.
Another funny thing is that i have a QOS classification for my router WAN administration port for the "high class" (the second highest priority). Whenever I enable the B/W limiter I can see that the connections are shown in QOS details as the correct class. But the byte count is for the default class (both shown via the QOS graphs and using the "tc -s -d qdisc" command). The byte count is shown correct when the B/W limiter is disabled again…. Could this also explain the inbound QOS class limits beeing ignored - my default class have full bandwidth?? I will do some experiments later.
Also changing from sfq to pfifo buffers does not affect the buffer type for the B/W limiter - or am I misjudging the info from the "tc -s -d -qdisc"
I am just a little puzzled here - maybe someone has experienced something similar?? I have been using different builds of Tomato for several years now, but I do not recal seeing something like this before.
By the way - I did read the info on using the QOS in the forum. That is why I tried the B/W limiter in the first place…..
