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:

Bandwidth

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.
