the bandwidth setting for lan and wan acks is set at 25% while the m2 value of lan/wan acks is set at 10%.
Any ideas as to how that fits into the equation? Maybe the logic behind those settings could help me to understand a little better.
Then the actual value will be 10%.
In each Queue page, there are 10 data fields:
Upper limit curve's m1, d, m2
Realtime curve's m1, d, m2
Linkshare curve's m1, d, m2
However, "Bandwidth" is just a shortcut for Linkshare curve's m2. If you set Bandwidth = 25% and Linkshare's m2 = 10%, then the "25%" takes no effects beside causing confusion.
Here's my practice:
- always set Bandwidth. I find it useful as it appears in pftop output and Traffic Shaper reports.
- set Linkshare's m2 (always = Bandwidth) only if I'm going to set Linkshare's m1 and d too. Otherwise, leave m2 unset.
