Part 2: Defining root qdisc

This part describes how to attach a qdisc on the interface, depending of the case of QoS type you want (classful or classless).


For this example, as the goal is only to shape the internet traffic, I have split the rules in two folders: download and upload. The of each folder will define the root QDisc and HTB class for the interface it targets, and then add this root class to the running list of our application.

This structure has worked for me for my setups with HTB, but I do not really recommend it for classless setups. As usual, do not feel restricted by the structure given here, and feel free to adapt it.
