Limiting bandwith for specific sites
« on: January 01, 2018, 01:52:12 am »
Hie everyone, how do I limit bandwidth for specific sites eg, windowsupdates.com or googlevideo.com and assigning specific speed to each site respectively?th I tried delay_pools but they flag an error when there is more than one delay_pool.

regards

Depending on how much bandwidth you have, you're probably better off using a turn-key AQM like fq_Codel. Just set your bandwidth and it will make sure everything feels fast.

https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=126637.0 is probably all you need. Depending on your upload bandwidth, you may need to tune the "quantum" and "target". In general, fq_Codel absolutely needs some tuning below 1Mb, highly desirable below 2Mb, still useful below 5-10Mb, depending on how picky you are about maximizing your bandwidth.
