debloat runs on both std ubuntu/debian systems and openwrt and turns
off offloads via ethtool, and trims down
It is intended to run out of /etc/network/ifup.d, and as such does not
take command line arguments but environmental parameters.
IFACE=wlan1 QMODEL=fq_codel debloat
On openwrt/cerowrt it runs out of /etc/hotplug.d/iface/00-debloat
There are tons of QMODEL options, see the bottommost portion of
"debloat" for the callbacks.
There are various options, like QDEBUG=1, which dumps the commands fed
to tc to stdout and a lot of bad-out-of-date documentation inside it.
It started life as a wrapper around qfq and has grown rather
embarrassingly bloated over time.
One major bug is that it does not detect bridged interfaces presently.
The simple_qos.sh script relies on it to set the tricky parameters
that it overrides.
> And which queue should have ecn disabled?
in the simple_qos.sh script I have been disabling ecn on egress
universally. It's on on ingress.
Note that this script is intended for a rate limited ethernet device, not wifi.
Of late, for wifi, I have been disabling ecn on wifi on the vo queue
and the background queue. There are various variants of the debloat
script (for wifi, ethernet, and various variants of codel, Xfq_codel,
and QFQ) in play at the moment.
