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/firehol/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

This example uses match statements.

# 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
   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

This example uses server/client statements in a bidirectional interface. Of course match statements can also be specified. FireQOS will create 2 interfaces out of this: world-in and world-out.
