tc-fq_codel


SYNOPSIS
       tc  qdisc ... fq_codel [ limit PACKETS ] [ flows NUMBER ] [ target TIME
       ] [ interval TIME ] [ quantum BYTES ] [ ecn | noecn ]


DESCRIPTION
       FQ_Codel (Fair Queuing Controlled Delay)  is  queuing  discipline  that
       combines  Fair  Queuing with the CoDel AQM scheme. FQ_Codel uses a sto-
       chastic model to classify incoming packets into different flows and  is
       used  to  provide  a fair share of the bandwidth to all the flows using
       the queue. Each such flow is managed by the CoDel  queuing  discipline.
       Reordering  within a flow is avoided since Codel internally uses a FIFO
       queue.


PARAMETERS
   limit
       has the same semantics as codel and is the hard limit on the real queue
       size.   When  this  limit  is  reached,  incoming  packets are dropped.
       Default is 10240 packets.


   flows
       is the number of flows into which the incoming packets are  classified.
       Due  to  the  stochastic  nature  of hashing, multiple flows may end up
       being hashed into the same slot. Newer flows have priority  over  older
       ones.  This  parameter can be set only at load time since memory has to
       be allocated for the hash table.  Default value is 1024.


   target
       has the same semantics as codel and is the  acceptable  minimum  stand-
       ing/persistent  queue delay. This minimum delay is identified by track-
       ing the local minimum queue delay  that  packets  experience.   Default
       value is 5ms.


   interval
       has the same semantics as codel and is used to ensure that the measured
       minimum delay does not become too stale.  The  minimum  delay  must  be
       experienced  in the last epoch of length .B interval.  It should be set
       on the order of the worst-case RTT through the bottleneck to give  end-
       points sufficient time to react.  Default value is 100ms.


   quantum
       is the number of bytes used as 'deficit' in the fair queuing algorithm.
       Default is set to 1514 bytes which corresponds to the Ethernet MTU plus
       the hardware header length of 14 bytes.


   ecn | noecn
       has the same semantics as codel and can be used to mark packets instead
