RE: pf/altq on a fast link (etinc is not as good as freeware)



It's quite clear, from the prior discussion, that etinc is inferior.
Anyone reading the archives will see this simply from the number of
people on this list who have put it down, but only Dennis
([email protected] !!!) actually thinks it's any good.
Nobody else does, everybody else thinks it's way too expensive for
what it does.
Now go away dennis, before you cause us to pick further holes in your
product.

openbsd-pf is a good firewall. But as a bandwidth management tool it's
quite inferior. Priority queuing is an archaic, inferior technology, if
you can call it a technology.
The subject here is "pf/altq" on a fast link. How does it perform on a
gigabit wire with stats gathering and limits configured for 5000 hosts?
How does granular, duration controlled bursting work? does it
automatically pace traffic to reduce queue depths when a point of
congestion is reached?
There's nothing wrong with an open-source firewall. But an ISP need a
separate bandwidth management box. Anyone that thinks they can do it
with the free stuff is settling for a trivial solution that will cost
them in the long run. The ethical thing to do, when someone asks about
using pf/altq for a high-volume business, is to tell them the truth.
They need something a bit better.
