Unclassified traffic in QoS

    Any idea why I'm getting so much unclassified data? I know there's some internal traffic to the router, but it seems that the other outbound traffic is not getting classified properly.

    edit: I'm not exactly sure, but I think my torrent traffic is actually fine. It seems like the unclassified outbound data grows when I'm downloading through newsgroups.

    This topic was just discussed here:


    Note: The traffic in your "Highest" class is misleading - if you tick the "prioritize ACKS" box, all ACKS including those for your P2P will move into the "Highest" class. Untick the box to correct that.

    You might care to read through the thread below on using QOS. Your present rules won't really achieve much.

    I assumed most of that unclassified traffic was remnants of torrent traffic as well. And that is probably true.

    I went ahead and turned off prioritize ACK packets, but I really don't see how ACK packets are taking up a consistent ~24kbit/s of traffic. I don't think this is the problem.

    Also I've read your links, but I don't see how my rules are not effective. I basically want to limit all my network traffic's upload to a max of 60% of my upload line except for dns resolutions and http/https traffic. I guess I'm being a noob at this, care to point out my mistake?

    Looking at your first diagram, you have 512k and 10240k set for max out and in bandwidth. Do you have a 512k up and 10Mbps down connection? If so, then you have to set the outgoing maximum limit to perhaps 80% of the minimum speed you ever measure on the line (must be measured, don't just enter the ISP's advised speed which is rarely correct). Otherwise, QOS won't work.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to read through the QOS guide again, all the answers are in there. Look for the "rate" and "limit" posts.
