So do you use DSCP to selectively mark the “priority” of packets? If yes you might want to look at layer-cake. Do you really want the computationally cheapest* way to solve your generalized shaping needs have a look at piece-of-cake. For most users I assume that piece-of-cake should be fine. That said, sqm-scripts could do abetter job at exposing cake’s specific options, but since I have lost my faith in cake’s speedy upstreaming I am kind of hesitant to add options to luci-app-sqm that might not survive the contact with linux kernel, and I absolutely detest the unholy non-systematic mess that cake’s overhead accounting options turned into… (and there are ways in the GUI to pass un-checked strings of options to the under laying qdisc’s already).
