I have tried to use RED for the BE class and TBF for the EF class. That 
showed up that the BE class used to much bandwidth with the values I used for 
limit, max, burst etc. How can I compute the bandwidth I am taking, with the 
values I use for this parameters?

How much have the priorities I am using affecting the result? 
E.g :
$TC qdisc add dev $DEV parent 2:2 red limit 60KB\
    min 15KB max 45KB burst 20 avpkt 1000 bandwidth 10Mbit\
    probability 0.4
$TC filter add dev $DEV parent 2:0 protocol ip prio 5\
    handle 0 tcindex mask 0 classid 2:2 pass_on        

Priority 5..

A also does not now what it mean to pass the parameter [pass_on | 
What's the meaning with this?

Usage: ... red limit BYTES min BYTES max BYTES avpkt BYTES burst PACKETS
               probability PROBABILITY bandwidth KBPS [ ecn ] 

If I use an 10Mbit switched Ethernet, what should be the best parameters 
values over for RED for not making the BE to use to much bandwidth so it is 
some left for my EF class?
The "bandwidth KBPS" parameter, is this the value of the physical link or 
what I will give to my class?

When I use TBF for both the EF class and BE class the results are better, but 
not as good as for CBQ.
Is CBQ better to use?

I have searched, but it seems like it hard to find some examples other than 
that which followed with iproute...
