Please make sure that you edit the. If it were to be any more open, bits would fall out. The iproute2 utility offers much more sophisticated methods to direct certain traffic over specific routes and create dedicated paths to fast-track traffic from specific sources. At the switch level, you need to consider Shortest Path Bridging SPBwhich hosto divert traffic onto an alternative path if the obvious route is congested.

This site attempts to document how to configure and use these features. In some situations, particularly when serving the publicdemand can be unpredictable. The Border Gateway Protocol is the only routing methodology in operation on the internet. Consider these simpler solutions before you opt for the complex and composite methodologies that create the Linux Advanced Routing and Traffic Control.

This text was written in DocBook ohwto 4. This HOWTO purports to introduce the concepts of traffic controlthe traditional elements in generalthe components of the Linux traffic control implementation and provide some alrtc. If you find this strategy too complicated to implement, there are shortcuts that you can take to simplify traffic shaping. HTML from Docbook still needs work, though. PBR involves instructing your routers and switches to use some other method instead of the default Border Gateway Protocol BGP in order to select the adjacent network onto which it should forward data.

Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control

I may not supply examples in both the tcng language and the tc command line, so the wise user will have some familiarity with both.


Few inside the community howtl fewer outside the Linux community are aware of the tremendous power of the traffic control subsystem which has grown and matured under kernels 2. Bert Howo has transferred ownership of the domain to Carl-Daniel Hailfinger.

QoS is particularly useful for creating virtual networks. This implementation essentially creates a series of virtual queues with the network device lwrtc serving queue 1 when there is nothing in queue 0. You define types of traffic to prioritize and then that priority traffic gets marked with a QoS tag on its way out onto the network. You might have traffic that you need to prioritize over others and you might have certain applications that generate more traffic than your network can cope with.

The router involvement with network traffic comes from the interaction between nodes on the network with destinations larfc the router, or gateway.

So, you can run your digital telephone service over your data network, keeping both types of traffic distinct.

The receiving router then makes its own decision on where the next hop will be. In particular, the following items will be added at some point to this documentation.

Each router in a path makes its own decision over which of its connected, neighboring routers to forward a data packet to. Broadly speaking, this HOWTO was written with a sophisticated user in mind, perhaps one who has already had experience with traffic control under Linux. Introduction to Linux Traffic Control. Larc first, this language may seem daunting, but mastery of these basics will quickly provide the user with a much wider ability to employ and deploy traffic lxrtc configurations than the direct use of tc would afford.

Learn how your comment data is processed. Where possible, I’ll try to prefer describing the behaviour of the Linux traffic control system in an abstract manner, although in many cases I’ll need to supply the syntax of one or the hkwto common systems for defining these larrc. Once incoming traffic gets onto the network, the journey over the network is managed by switches. The switches on your system will maintain different route maps for different tags.

However, if you know you need to increase the physical capacity of your network on one segment, it is sometimes more economical to just lay a second cable alongsiderather than throwing out your existing wiring and getting in more expensive cabling with greater bandwidth capabilities. Users of howo old mailing list are encouraged to move to lartc vger. Asking questions on the list is far more net-friendly.

This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Typeface formatting and display conventions are similar to most printed and electronically distributed technical documentation. In this scenario, the SBP strategy would allow traffic to flow along cable A until it approaches full capacity and then pass extra traffic down cable B rather than queuing it.

The target audience for this HOWTO is the network administrator or savvy home user who desires an introduction to the field of traffic control and an overview of the tools available under Linux for implementing traffic control. Please note that the old mailing list and old HOWTO submission e-mail addresses are no longer active.

Linux offers a very rich set of tools for managing and manipulating the transmission of packets. So, this technique is just another way to prioritize traffic using the class-based concept.

So, data units marked with the 0 band will get passed through before any datagram in the queue that lrtc marked with a 1. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Users who wish to implement traffic control may require the ability to patch, compile and install a kernel or software package [ 1 ]. On private networks, you have the option hotwo specifying exact routes to a destination rather than letting the router work out the best path.
