Re: The penalty for realtime imbecilitis
Down vote me but here you go.
(see page 14 where even an WRT1900ACv2 can only do 300Mbps throughput even with cake, significantly less for HTB). For the record I have tried cake personally on my WNDR3800 and found it not to be stable at least with PPPoE but I'm on slow ass 20Mbps DSL with a very pathetic upload so HTB+FQ_Codel works perfect for me. Also any qdisc that doesn't do rate limiting (PIE, FQ_Codel) is by itself nearly worthless. Your router has to own where the packets get queued (own the queue) or your QOS is worthless.
