Description

It is not possible to create a root PRIQ or FAIRQ scheduler on an interface that doesn't report bandwidth (ie an OpenVPN tun device assigned as an interface). It should be possible to assign a percentage of bandwidth or just a bare priority queue on any interface regardless of underlying bandwidth.

Well the 'workaround' for this is to manually specify the bandwidth of the interface during root queue config.

Other than that the fix might be to patch pfctl to assume 100Mb of speed for interfaces that do not report it?

I will put this as a Feature rather than bug because of how ALTQ behaves on interfaces that do not have afixed bandwidth by default.

#4 Updated by Mr Horizontal over 8 years ago

Well if an assumption has to be made, it'd be best assume that the interface speed is to the fastest physical interface in the system. If you have a 10Gbit interface, that should be what's set...

#5 Updated by Ermal Luçi about 8 years ago

I put a patch for this and it would give by default to an interface 100Mbit line if it is not reported automatically.
