I will be looking into this. I will be building a system
shortly that will be perfect to test this on. As I have to setup a
lab to profile out new Athlon box I will add this to the planned
So far on the list I have
Testing maxburst values on various flow levels.
Testing HZ=2048 on packet scheduling.
BTW: How does this all interact with multiple interfaces? What
happens when the workload from say 4 100Mbit interfaces doing CBQ is
introduced? What happens if JIFFIE < workload instead of JIFFIE >
As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches,
and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough...
