I am setting up a gateway server/router and am working on traffic shaping setup. I had things working fairly well, but then I started a bittorrent download of a debian iso and it totally killed other downloads. (This shaping stuff is nightmarish.) I am doing egress shaping with hfsc. Are there any solution suggestions that do not require non-Debian software? Here is what I am using now (plus a few recent changes): http://wiki.debian.org/green/Router#TrafficShaping It seems to be nearly impossible to detect p2p connections... but what about using iptable's recent module to detect many connections with large packets to/from a specific host? Then, if necessary, I could just rate-limit on ingress (local interfaces). Does anyone have a shaping setup that tries to be fair where p2p is concerned, with miminal/no ingress shaping? Thanks.
