Using mangle to provide QOS

Thu Aug 25, 2005 1:09 pm

Hi all

I am new to this forum so excuse possible newby question!

I am running a test setup with MT 2.8. I have the system working fine and I am starting to apply bandwidth limiting and QOS rules. I have managed to get simple queues working to limit overall bandwidth per connection. What can't figure out is how the mangle/mark system works. For example, if I have 512K total bandwidth, I allow 128K for a particular PPPOE connection, how do i then say limit http only to 64K and guarantee 64K for SMTP port 25 traffic.

If anyone has an example of how they do this I would be most appreciated.

The manual page for this is here:

Not the easiest of subjects to grasp so come back with any further questions. Generally, you mark connections with a Connection mark, mark all identical connection marks with a flow mark and then allocate a priority for the flow in the Queue.
