I read on some thread, if TCP vegas is enabled, the regular QOS can be turned off. Is this true?
I thought I read that it was snake oil for one-upmanship against dd-wrt?
No. Qos controls the order of traffic leaving the lan, Tcp-vegas is a congestion control algorithm which ensures traffic continues to flow when the line is under load but has absolutely no control over the priority of data. It works but keeping packets buffered, which means it also adds to latency slightly.
It doesn't replace qos, but it can work well with it. I'd only use it if i knew my uplink would be under heavy load most of the time, otherwise I don't think the increased latency is worth the trade off but that's personal opinion.
The DD-WRT users swear they won't go back to qos after using it, but if you tried DD-WRTs qos you wouldn't want to go back to it after using tomato
Vegas does nothing of value on Tomato. Ignore it.
