Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8340
Cbq support still missing (QoS stuff)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
As I reported early (but I can't find my old bug report here in Bugzilla)
cbq module support is still missing in kernel. As we have shapecfg package
in distribution we should have cbq (and maybe other "QoS and/or fair
queueing modules") modules in kernel package to allow cbq script from
shapecfg package to work properly.
The only one problem is that you should compile the kernel with the proper
compiler because some of them break these modules.
Is there any reason to not include QoS to RPM??? This is extremly uncomfortable.
Alan, should the QoS kernel options and the advanced router options be enabled
in the 2.2 kernels? The 2.4 kernels?
Alan bounced this to you Dave....
I see no reason why we should not enable the packet scheduler
modules, we ship all the tools (tc, shapecfg, etc.) and I'm confident
in Alexey's work. This goes for both 2.2.x and 2.4.x kernels.
After some thinking, I believe the advanced router stuff should
be enabled in both kernels as well. All of this stuff is well
maintained and rather stable.
As there is shapecfg package in standard distribution, kernel should support it.
Please, enable QoS in the kernel.
Done in current source tree.
Mucking around with 2.4.2-0.1.16, it seems QoS options have all been disabled. Was there some reason for this?
I think it'd be great to see QOS stuff in the kernel, built as modules.
enabled the modules again
