The whole expeience was quite pleasant (using ssh over a ssl based VPN to remote control an X11 session while stressing in and out direction); counter to my subjective experience though netalyzr was detecting 3000 odd milliseconds of buffering upstream (downstream was fine). Once I find more time I will have a go at reproducing that. (Now I have to figure out whether I need to restart simple_qos.sh anytime I down or up an interface; any pointer?) BTW, how do you envision this to be started under the AQM tab; shall this start simple_qos or rather debloat?

No, I had something more wonderful in mind.

Felix Fietkau has added fq_codel to the openwrt 3.3 kernel and to the 
existing qos-scripts as of openwrt revision 31761.

Builds for 37 architectures and ~150 platforms are popping out as I write.



For details.

I will be obsoleting the CeroWrt aqm and aqm-scripts and simple_qos as 
soon as the new qos-scripts handles ipv6 properly, and maybe get a 
chance to add a trick or two to more to it.

Erics latest patch to fq_codel has not yet landed in openwrt.

Patches gladly accepted. Frankly I'd hoped to have CeroWall done by now, 
but, well, the ball's on the 20 yard line, and I need to bench myself 
for a while.

Hopefully someone else can take it in for the score.
