Packet Prioritization

Hi Tom!

I’m currently using FQCodel to address bufferbloat. Works very well. I would like to experiment on prioritization of packets such as “TCP ACK” can you provide some guidelines? Currently It is set up like this:

  1. Created another queue under upload pipe with a weight of 10 (named “Upload Priority Queue”)
  2. Creaded floating rule :
    Action: Pass
    Interface: WAN
    Direction: Out
    Address Family: IPv4
    Protocol: TCP
    Source: Any
    Destination: Any
    TCP Flag: out of ACK (2nd row)
    Gateway: WAN
    In/Out Pipe: Download Queue / Upload Priority Queue

Any thoughts on this?


Never tried it, not clear that it would really serve any advantage. I just use FQCodel.
