Current state of this project:
Grade: production, working on more than 40 hosts from June 2000,
city-wide ISP network
OS version: 3-STABLE from 8 January 2000 - this version currently used
in our production routers/hosts
Capabilities: guaranteed low bandwidth, maximum bandwidth, priority can be
set for queue, traffic classification and bandwidth management
realized by separate netgraph nodes.
Since I currently have high workload, I dont have time to port it to 4.x or
Conclusion: volunteer required for this work... and I can consult him/her.
