I'm going to try and go down and catch this meeting.  Gabe is an
extremely knowledgable guy, and iproute2 is something that's long been
on my wishlist to learn about.  I have room for one extra person (or two
*really* skinny people) in my truck.  There's usually traffic on I80 at
that time, so anyone leaving from Santa Rosa should do so no later than

The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD), will be holding a meeting on:

  March 15, 2004
  6:30pm - 9:00pm

The meeting will be held at our regular location:

  Davis Public Library
  315 East 14th Street
  Davis, CA 95616

The topic will be:

  Linux Traffic Shaping w/ netfilter & iproute2
  presented by: Gabriel Rosa

    Using netfilter and iproute2, we can use the new TCP/IP infrastructure
    in the 2.4 kernels and above to achieve near complete control over how
    bandwidth is used.  Alternate queueing disciplines, bandwidth floors and
    ceilings based on TOS, packet length, arbitraty packet marking (using
    iptables), time of day, source/destination, help prioritize how packets
    are handled (such as to allow lag free ssh while uploading/downloading)
    and Control both inbound and outbound bandwidth.
