Hello Freebsd-pf,

  Sorry for my english.

OpenBSD team is abandon the altq project.
Maybe FreeBSD team does not come as OpenBSD team.

In Kernel is present  "options ALTQ_CDNR       # Traffic conditioner",
that  is  may  be  used  for  simple  ingress  traffic  shaping  (like
dummynet).  Maybe  you  may add this function to pfctl to make use it.
Maybe after this OpenBSD team is backport this function to base.

Also   lacking  in  pf/altq  dynamic  queues  like  in  dummynet  with
dst-masks   (src-masks)(ipfw  pipe 10 config mask dst-ip 0x000000ff bw
1024bit/s  queue; ipfw add pipe 10 tcp from any to via fxp0),
when  with  one  rule may create many dynamic queues for per ip shaping from subnet.

 This  maybe  useful  for  many  people,  because  pf  is most popular

 Thank you.

Best regards,
 irix                          mailto:irix at
