Protocal Proritization

Posted on 2005-04-19

Hi all,

I am doing bandwidth control using a linux box (fedora core
2) using Hierarchical Token Bucket (HTB) configured to work based on
the Kbps assigned to the clients with no protocol filtering. Ours is a
small ISP and u can imagine a scenario where a client has exhausted
his bandwidth and since there is no protocol prioritization his ping
begins to break.

How can I add protocol prioritization to this?  This will also give us better control over the quality of our VoIP channels.

Also, most of our customers will do with the raw html texts (pictures, sounds, PDFs etc can take longer to load but the raw html files need to load faster).  Is there a way to achive this also?
