Add queue length adjustment capabilities to traffic shaper based on network size
On larger networks, queue limits appear to perform better and drop less when increased in proportion to the size of the network, based on a known packets per second metric of each queue.
Perhaps a generic scale could be created and queues calculated based on network size.
Small Network < 50 nodes (default)
Medium Network > 50 nodes < 500 nodes
Large Network > 500 nodes

Actually, after some research and a better understanding of queuing, this is not practical.
Queue lengths need to be set in such a way as to allow no more than 0.5-1 second of backlogging (i.e. 2000 Packets Per Second should have a queue length between 1000-2000). Unfortunately, this is going to be different in each environment and is highly dependent on the traffic hitting each queue.
