Not quite precise.. ipsystems isn't interested in general techniques of bandwidth management but seems like he needs to know how to shape the packets.

Well.. In the time I was reading about CBQ I went through the previous HOWTO, but this one gave me much more understanding about CBQ and iproute2 in general.

http://svana.org/kleptog/Packet-Shaping-HOWTO.html

And if you want to know about all the iproute2 package (the one containing tc utility needed to setup the CBQ) have a look here:

http://lartc.org/howto/

Which would probably give you all the tools you need for even the most complicated policy routing together with selective traffic shaping.

If you have more than 2 interfaces on the router and/or your traffic flow is not quite standard (i.e. same interface's outgoing queue could be both your logical upload and download) you can use IMQ:

The latter is a kernel patch, but I can guaratnee that it works perfectly and we have it in the production environment.

Hope all the above helps.
