options ALTQ options ALTQ_BLUE options ALTQ_CBQ options ALTQ_CDNR options ALTQ_FIFOQ options ALTQ_FLOWVALVE options ALTQ_HFSC options ALTQ_LOCALQ options ALTQ_PRIQ options ALTQ_RED options ALTQ_RIO options ALTQ_WFQ
DESCRIPTION
The altq framework provides several disciplines for queuing outgoing net- work packets. While traffic shaping is perhaps the most prominent exam- ple, altq provides also other measures related to QoS. The framework has been integrated to the pf(4) packet filter since NetBSD 4.0. At the implementation level altq modifies the interface packet queues. Therefore the driver modifications described in altq(9) are required in order to use a certain network card with altq.
