Multiple streams from Microsoft and LLNW at the same time. LLNW alone had maybe 10 streams going and was sending at over 15Mbps on average and at worst about 25Mbps... to a 1.5Mbps subscriber. I could throw in a MikroTik queue upstream which only moved the problem as that 15-25Mbps was still hitting backhaul links. And when I have a 100Mbps link going into the site, 25Mbps is a lot. Maybe I'm being naive but this sounds like an issue primarily with buffers. Police rather than shape the traffic, and reduce the burst size, and a lot of this should disappear... M
