Kenjiro Cho, Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc.
ALTQ is a package for traffic management. ALTQ
includes a queueing framework and several advanced
queueing disciplines such as CBQ, RED, WFQ and RIO.
ALTQ also supports RSVP and diffserv. ALTQ can be
configured in a variety of ways for both research and operation.
However, it requires understanding of the technologies
to set up things correctly. In this paper, I summarize
the design trade-offs, the available technologies
and their limitations, and how they can be applied to typical
