However, if you know you need to increase the physical capacity of your network on one segment, it is sometimes more economical to just lay a second cable alongsiderather than throwing out your existing wiring and getting in more expensive cabling with greater bandwidth capabilities. Please note that the old mailing list and old HOWTO submission e-mail addresses are no longer active.

1. Introduction to Linux Traffic Control

In this scenario, the SBP strategy would allow traffic to flow along cable A until it approaches full capacity and then pass extra traffic down cable B rather than queuing it. A section laartc examples. The internet is made up of independently owned and managed networks.

If you search for the internet, you will see the term applied to the operations of wifi routers. Once incoming traffic gets onto the network, the journey over the larrc is managed by switches. I assume that the reader may have no prior traffic hwto experience.

The danger of congestion on the network can be headed off by specifying the behavior of switches. The moderator will not approve postings from non-subscribed addresses as he is not available at all times.

Learn how your comment data is processed. QoS is really a form of jowto routing. Bert Hubert has offered to continue hosting the old mailing list archives at hwoto A section discussing the techniques for measuring traffic. At first, this language may seem daunting, but mastery of these basics will quickly provide the user with a much wider ability to employ and deploy traffic control configurations than the direct use of tc would afford.


I assume that the reader is comfortable with UNIX concepts and the command line and has a basic knowledge of IP networking. The tcng software package defines an entire language for describing traffic control structures. So, this technique is just another way to prioritize traffic using the class-based concept.

For example, QoS can help reserve bandwidth laartc make specific applications available all of the time at the cost of others in the event of a traffic surge.

When implemented, your router or switch will perform normally when it is under capacitybut once queuing starts, it will pull the next message off the queue that has the lowest band number. The classes are identified by a number, starting with 0 and incrementing sequentially.

Where possible, I’ll try to prefer describing the behaviour of the Linux traffic control system in an abstract manner, although in many cases I’ll need to supply the syntax of one or the other common systems for defining these structures. A Korean translation can be found on here. Introduction to Linux Traffic Control.

The router involvement with network traffic comes from the interaction between nodes on the network with destinations beyond the router, or gateway. I may not supply examples in both the tcng language and the tc command line, so the wise user will have some familiarity with both.

Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control

Users who wish to implement traffic control may require the ability to patch, compile and install a kernel or software package [ 1 hiwto. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.


Network device from PXHere. Typeface formatting and display conventions are similar to most printed and electronically distributed technical documentation.

The Border Gateway Protocol is the only routing methodology in operation on the internet. The receiving router then makes its own decision on where the next hop will be. Uowto, there are plenty of other routing strategies that you could adopt. Jobs Bazaar Sponsor Massive thanks to: BGP is implemented by routing tables maintained by all of the routers on the internet.

The Quick Guide to LARTC plus five alternative methods

This implementation essentially creates a series of virtual queues with the network device only serving queue 1 when there is nothing in queue 0. News Mailinglist Download Manpages Dive in! So, you can run your digital telephone service over your data network, keeping both types of traffic distinct. Few inside the community and fewer outside the Linux community are aware of the tremendous power of the traffic control subsystem which has grown and matured under kernels 2.

In most network traffic scenarios, you have the time and power to analyze traffic and expand or adapt resources accordingly. At the switch level, you need to consider Shortest Path Bridging SPBwhich will divert traffic onto an alternative path if the obvious route is congested.

All errors and omissions are strictly my fault. Linux offers a howtl rich set of tools for managing and manipulating the transmission of packets. If you find this strategy too complicated to implement, there are shortcuts that you can take to simplify traffic shaping. If it were to be any more open, bits would fall out.
