We switched from a speed based setup controlled via the individual radios to a usage based setup processed through our edge Mikrotik that connects to the fiber network. We use Queues to track all the usage and I have a server and scripts that collect the usage data, enable and disable the users integrated with our custom billing system.
Running about 200 mbps at night with about 1000 queues I am wondering if simple queues are the best way to go. I do not know if we are ultimately hindering performance using queues and firewall. Is there a better solution to gathering this information that people have experience with?
Please let me know your experience.
