Cake offers three relevant per-IP "isolation" options, dual-srchost,
dual-dsthost, and triple-isolate. The dual options are relatively
straightforward, they promise to separate by either SRC or DST up address of
the packets, allowing easy prediction what they should do to a given set of
flows between internal and external machines. They for example allow to set up
either fairness by external IP addresses or what commonly seems to be wanted
fairness by internal IP addresses. BUT to work correctly one needs to configure
the correct directionality for ingress and egress. Triple-isolate promises to
do something in-between per-internal-IP and per-internal-IP fairness making it
possible to forego having to configure the right "direction" into the shaper.
The goal making it easier for the user to get a reasonable, albeit not perfect,
fairness guarantee is surely laudable; what I so far have not seen is a top
level description what it does exactly and data showing that it DTRT.
