ALTQ(4)                    Kernel Interfaces Manual                    ALTQ(4)

NAME
     altq -- alternate queuing framework

     options ALTQ_LOCALQ
     options ALTQ_PRIQ
     options ALTQ_RED
     options ALTQ_RIO
     options ALTQ_WFQ

DESCRIPTION
     The altq framework provides several disciplines for queuing outgoing
     network packets.  While traffic shaping is perhaps the most prominent
     example, altq provides also other measures related to QoS.  The framework
     has been integrated to the pf(4) packet filter since NetBSD 4.0.

     At the implementation level altq modifies the interface packet queues.
     Therefore the driver modifications described in altq(9) are required in
     order to use a certain network card with altq.
