Description Mindaugas Riauba 2002-12-30 07:48:58 UTC
Description of problem:
HTB packet scheduler works not correctly when HZ is other than 100
or 1024. RedHat's default is 512. And problem appears only with
UDP traffic. TCP is shaped OK.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-smp-2.4.18-18.7.x

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup traffic shaping with HTB class.
2. Flood link with UDP traffic.
    
Actual results:
Traffic exceeds set limit or even is not shaped at all.

Expected results:
Shaped traffic.

Additional info:
At least in include/net/pkt_sched.h there is the following code:

#if HZ == 100
#define PSCHED_JSCALE 13
#elif HZ == 1024
#define PSCHED_JSCALE 10
#else
#define PSCHED_JSCALE 0
#endif
