       CoDel - Fair Queuing (FQ) with Controlled Delay (CoDel)


       tc qdisc ... fq_codel [ limit PACKETS ] [ flows NUMBER ] [ target TIME ] [ interval TIME ]
       [ quantum BYTES ] [ ecn | noecn ]


       FQ_Codel (Fair Queuing Controlled Delay) is queuing discipline that combines Fair  Queuing
       with  the  CoDel AQM scheme. FQ_Codel uses a stochastic model to classify incoming packets
       into different flows and is used to provide a fair share of the bandwidth to all the flows
       using  the  queue.  Each  such flow is managed by the CoDel queuing discipline. Reordering
       within a flow is avoided since Codel internally uses a FIFO queue.


       has the same semantics as codel and is the hard limit on the real queue size.   When  this
       limit is reached, incoming packets are dropped. Default is 10240 packets.

       is  the  number  of  flows  into  which  the  incoming  packets are classified. Due to the
       stochastic nature of hashing, multiple flows may end up being hashed into the  same  slot.
       Newer  flows  have  priority  over older ones. This parameter can be set only at load time
       since memory has to be allocated for the hash table.  Default value is 1024.

       has the same semantics as codel and is the acceptable  minimum  standing/persistent  queue
       delay.  This  minimum  delay  is identified by tracking the local minimum queue delay that
       packets experience. Default value is 5ms.

       has the same semantics as codel and is used to ensure that the measured minimum delay does
       not  become  too stale.  The minimum delay must be experienced in the last epoch of length
       .B interval.  It should be set on the order of the worst-case RTT through  the  bottleneck
       to give endpoints sufficient time to react. Default value is 100ms.

       is  the number of bytes used as 'deficit' in the fair queuing algorithm. Default is set to
       1514 bytes which corresponds to the Ethernet MTU plus the hardware  header  length  of  14

   ecn | noecn
       has  the same semantics as codel and can be used to mark packets instead of dropping them.
       If ecn has been enabled, noecn can be used to turn it off and vice-a-versa. Unlike  codel,
       ecn is turned on by default.
