NAME

       fireqos.conf - FireQOS configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       This file defines the traffic shaping that will be applied by fireqos(1).

       The  default  configuration  file is /etc/fireqos/fireqos.conf.  It can be overridden from
       the command line.

       A configuration consists of a number  of  input  and  output  interface  definitions  (see
       fireqos-interface(5)).   Each  interface  can  define  any  number  of (optionally nested)
       classes  (see  fireqos-class(5))  which  shape  the  traffic   which   they   match   (see
       fireqos-match(5)).

SPEED UNITS

       In FireQOS, speeds can be expressed in the following units:

       #bps   # bytes per second

       #kbps; #Kbps
              # kilobytes per second

       #mbps; #Mbps
              # megabytes per second

       #gbps; #Gbps
              # gigabytes per second

       #bit   # bits per second

       #kbit; #Kbit; #
              # kilobits per second (default)

       #mbit; #Mbit
              # megabits per second

       #gbit; #Gbit
              # gigabits per second

       #%     In a class, uses this percentage of the enclosing rate.

              Note

              The default, kbit is different to tc(8) which assumes bytes per second when no unit
              is specified.

EXAMPLE

               # incoming traffic from my ADSL router
               interface eth2 adsl-in input rate 10500kbit adsl remote pppoe-llc
                 class voip commit 100kbit pfifo
                   match udp ports 5060,10000:10100 # asterisk sip and rtp
                   match udp ports 16393:16402 # apple facetime

                 class realtime commit 10%
                   match tcp port 22,1195:1198,1753 # ssh, openvpn, pptp
                   match udp port 53 # dns
                   match proto GRE
                   match icmp
                   match tcp syn
                   match tcp ack

                 class clients commit 10%
                   match tcp port 20,21,25,80,143,443,465,873,993 # mail, web, ftp, etc

               # unmatched traffic goes here ('default' is a special name)
                 class default max 90%

               # I define torrents beneath the default class, so they slow
               # down when the default class is willing to get bandwidth
                 class torrents max 90%
                   match port 51414 # my torrent client

               # outgoing traffic to my ADSL router
               interface eth2 adsl-out output rate 800kbit adsl remote pppoe-llc

                   match tcp syn
                   match tcp ack

                 class clients commit 10%
                   match tcp port 20,21,25,80,143,443,465,873,993 # mail, web, ftp, etc
