Re: Borrow not working

Thanks a lot, Bob!
I'll try and use this hfsc scheduler, then I'll post the results.

Hello, everybody.

We've been trying to get "borrow" to work for us, but despite our reading every reasonable piece of documentation, messages in this list and several web pages - trying to find a solution, it's still not working. We also tried to use the same PF configuration on BSD 3.3 and 3.6, with no success.

I couldn't get the CBQ scheduler (I'm in FreeBSD 5.3 which I believe uses the same underlying code as OpenBSD - ALTQ) to share out bandwidth reliably.

It wouldn't use all the bandwidth available, even if there was only one queue in use.

I switched to the HFSC scheduler, and I'm very happy with it. I haven't been able to find any decent documentation for it with specific regard to PF, but I read enough theoretical overview documents to have a bit of a clue. Seems a shame not to have a good document for PF and HFSC, though.
