I have modified the text of the Setting up SQM page as described in the earlier messages (https://lists.bufferbloat.net/pipermail/cerowrt-devel/2014-January/001997.html) The wiki now says:  http://www.bufferbloat.net/projects/cerowrt/wiki/Setting_up_SQM_for_CeroWrt_310

done in the comcast build and for future builds.

Incidentally, part of the appeal of "SQM" to me is the first hit is
for a fertilizer company.


The song itself is kind of catchy (I don't know if he's online, I have
the CD) and can cause earworms on bad days.

"It comes from mushrooms, mushrooms, keep them in the dark..."

I should also point out that multiple other schemes qualify as SQM in
my mind: gargoyle-router's ACC in particular, but also streamboost,
and qos-scripts, wondershaper, etc.

We could still use a brandname.

Not sure where this goes. Current comcast code says:

m = Map("sqm", translate("Smart Queue Management"),
        translate("With <abbr title=\"Smart Queue
Management\">SQM</abbr> you " ..
                "can enable traffic shaping, better mixing (Fair Queueing)," ..
                " active queue length management (AQM) " ..
                " and prioritisation on one " ..
                "network interface."))

> - Basic Settings tab: we had discussed removing the "Enable" checkbox and adding a "None" choice to the "Interface name" dropdown. Is this possible? (default setting should obviously be "ge00") If not, the tab is fine as-is.

Well this opens the problem of people wanting SQM on multiple
interfaces, which was a nice feature.

Is the () needed in the drop down

in (PPoe? pppoa? what?)

I note I'm burnt and just lost a week I could ill afford to this. I
have pushed out all sources in the hope
someone else can update the build howto and get something that works....

I am travelling this weekend and won't have time to get another build out.

Perhaps more cool stuff can land. I have a wishlist. :)

Perhaps someone can find a cure to the he problem but I fear it's
buried deep in a script or in ubus.
