Simple QUEUE

by shdwmstff » Tue Aug 14, 2012 4:33 pm

Using simple queue to limit bandwidth on an interface, And user is complaining that they can only receive total bandwidth in one direction at a time. this is the config.

When doing a transfer currently using almost 10mb upload for an hour.. they were unable to pull more than 3 megs down at the same time. (is there something wrong in the config I'm using?)

admin@MikroTik] /queue simple> print
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic
0 name="Cust1" target-addresses="" interface=ether2 parent=none
packet-marks="" direction=both priority=8
queue=default-small/default-small limit-at=12M/12M max-limit=12M/12M
burst-limit=0/0 burst-threshold=0/0 burst-time=0s/0s

Question the whats difference between "Max-limit" and "Limit-at" options?

Hi sir
to have simple queue working in a deterministic way as expected, please define both properties target-addresses and interface.

Doing so you will observe a queue behaviour as expected.

As reported by wiki
Be careful to configure both of these options for the same queue - in case they will point to opposite directions queue will not work.

If neither value of target-addresses nor of interface is specified, the queue will not be able to make difference between upload and download, and will limit all traffic twice.
If answer was helpful to you why to not plan to... give me karma :)
