Most common mistake that i have seen while moving from v5 to v6.
is forgetting that
Traffic can be captured only by once, so if one queue captures it it will never get to the rest of the queues.
so queue with target 0.0.0.0/0 just captures all the traffic in its upload and othet queues doesn''t work
so queues are translated to target=<client IP>, <interface> so queue captures all the traffic on that <interface> so nothing is left for other <client IP> queues
Ok, so here is my possible problem?
I have 500+ simple queues to limit my clients. But in the transfer to v6. all these queues get also their interface assigned? Now I understand why when I did so, only two queues showed traffic. Both they had a different interface.
I also have some simple queues at the bottom of v5. s.queue list, "END QUEUE". This is a queue without any target address (which than means 0.0.0.0/0 wasn't it?) to catch any traffic not catch by one of the previous queues.
I actually even have for each of my AP's (with their own IP network) /24 or segment queues made, to catch any traffic that is not catched by a client queue. (Because sometime I forget to make a queue. Or sometimes a Queue is just not catching its traffic, but the general one does...)
So, in translating my v5. s.queues I now need to manually erase all the 'interface' targets? And I need to erase all the simple queues that catches traffic not targeted by its specific IP address?
Pffffff. I only have 500+ simple queues. What if you would have a couple of thousands....... Is there no other way?
