Re: Linux traffic shaping problem



If you have recompiled your kernel then you will need to select this, 
(under make menuconfig options) otherwise, it is already turned on for 
stock redhat kernels.

You will also need the iproute2 tools (tc, ip, etc - the rpm is on the 
redhat cd)

Then you will have to work out what it is exactly that you are trying to 
do, and keep in mind, shaping only works in the outbound (egress) 
direction, so in order to do shaping of traffic comming into your network 
you will need to control both ends of your link.

When this is all sorted out then I would suggest you read the traffic 
shaping howto's (a google search will find htese for you) which will give 
you some idea of how things work, but sadly tend to be rather complex to 
understand, once you've had a bash at that then you can post questions 
here and people may be able to help, but keep in mind, its a complex 
subject so keep your questions specific. things such as "it doesn't work" 
are not especially conducive to getting an answer back past "yes it does" 
:-)
