Simple Queue Time

Mon Feb 08, 2021 6:52 pm

Hello,

Are there any problems with implementing a bandwidth limit with a simple queue which only applies at night using the simple queue time option?

Several sites providing guide for setting up a simple queue for bandwidth limit suggest simplest method is to use a script and the system scheduler as opposed to the built in time option on queue; for example: https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Limit_Di ... _and_Night

Is this because the queue will not apply to already existing / established connections?

Can simple queue target address be a range that does not match networks exactly? Example: will 192.168.0.0/16 cover 192.168.43.0/24 as well as other subnets?
[admin@RouterBrd493] /queue simple> print
Flags: X - disabled, I - invalid, D - dynamic
 0 XI  name="Sleep_Night" target=192.168.0.0/16 parent=none packet-marks="" priority=8/8 queue=default-small/default-small
      limit-at=0/0 max-limit=8k/32k burst-limit=0/0 burst-threshold=0/0 burst-time=0s/0s bucket-size=0.1/0.1
      time=22h-1d3h,sun,mon,tue,wed,thu,fri
Will the above apply from 22:00 in the evening to 03:00 of the next day? Not sure I understand the notation correctly.

Thank you!
