Another Question About Queues

I have a quick question. When you build a simple queue you add a queue type to it. Now say that queue type is pfifo with a size of 50 packets. Now lets say you create two simple queue both with the same queue type.

My question is does each simple queue get 50 packets each or do they share the 50 packets for that queue type?

I belive that they each get 50 packets but I want to confirm this.

Also if the simple queue limits speeds in both directions and you assign the same queue type to each does each direction get the 50 packets or do they share the 50 packets.

I know the total queue type says both up and down share that queue so both directions share the 50 packets so I am assuming since there is this setting that the queue type for the up and down each get 50 packets.

Thanks for any help

The queue type just indicates which type of queue it is. Each queue created is isolated from others and if the Bandwidth is avaialble, they will get the full rate set.

I am trying to figure out the buffering on the queues. So each queue gets 50 packets before it starts dropping packets. I am trying to make sure that it isn't the entire set of queues assigned to that queue type doesn't get the 50 packet buffer.
