Well, let's say you setup the following with CBQ
Parent queue: 100% (80% free)
VoIP queue: has 10% minimum and can borrow from parent
Other data queue: has 10% minimum and can borrow from parent
If there is VoIP data and other data at the same time they both fight for
bandwidth in the parent queue. Right? That's the way I see it (and tested
it come to the same conclusion).
Is there something I'm missing here?
