Subject: [gentoo-user] Using SFQ for fair bandwidth alocation on servers

Hello yall!

I have a collocation server with a 2 Mbps bandwidth for my e-mail. I would
like to use SFQ to do a more fair split of this bandwidth between my users
(~500). I think SFQ is a very good idea: it will split the available
bandwidth between the current connections (almost) equally, and it's CPU
cheap.

The problem is: from what I could read, SFQ can only read the available
bandwidth from the physical layer. Is it possible to tell SFQ something like
"I only have 2 Mbps, and not 100 Mbps, from eth0"?

Maybe if I put SFQ inside another queue that has everything?

Best regards,
Daniel Colchete
