Phantom "Highest" QoS traffic

    This is frustrating. Any easy way to find out what's eating so much outgoing bandwidth?

    Doing a lot of downloads (high packet rate)? If so, and you have ACK prioritization enabled, this is exactly what you'll see.

    That fixed it. I read that prioritizing ACK could be bad in a few cases, guess this is one. All the traffic is categorized correctly now.

    I don't know if it's "bad" - it's correctly reflecting bandwidth uses. Faster ACKs mean faster responses which reduces latency.

    The biggest challenge was older P2P apps that set the ACK flag on _huge_ data packets, which effectively put them in the Highest class no matter how they were otherwise categorized. That's mostly a non-issue these days.
