[Cerowrt-devel] Routing limit question

OK, I tried a few combinations of burst and cburst on a cerowrt box,
using 90/10 as a up/download speed.
burst 64000 cburst 64000 was a bit of a win, in most respects, but odd

And lo and behold the sirq gets smaller the larger burst/cburst is set. Now tho test is just too confounded by my bad wireless to be proof, but it certainly justifies the time to expose knobs in the GUI to set burst/cburst/quantum values for HTB for each shaper instance independent for ingress and egress… (I do not assume that this will even double the throughput of a wndr as a router, but even just 10-20% will make a difference ;) (I will eat my own dogwood, since I am about to upgrade from 16M/2.5M to 50M/10M right into where our sirq pain starts)).

>>> Also I wonder whether when we increase the quantum for higher rates to give HTB some breathing room, whether we also should increase burst and cburst? My hunch is that quantum affects the switching between the leaves, while busts and cburst should allow to dump more data to lower layers inside each leaf qdisc. And since we are running behind, maybe taking a bigger shovel can help some. (I assume this needs to be titrated not to kill latency under load, but if we can only effective have HTB execute x times per second we can easily afford to dump line-rate/maxHTB_iteratin_rate bytes per opportunity, no?) My own internet link is way to slow to test this...
