Re: Bandwidth limits

How about using ToS filtering so all your traffic (like voip) gets
higher priority that tor?

I've waited a bit before the new server stabilized traffic
before I tried placing a VoIP call on the same DSL line.
Unthrottled, the result was unusable. Even with 40 KB limits
it took a while (some 20-30 sec into the call) it took a while
before stuttering subsided, and only occasional faint artifacts
were heard.

I'm trying

BandwidthRate 30 KB
BandwidthBurst 30 KB

now, but I welcome other solutions. I could use pfSenses TrafficShaper
to throttle select ports, but it would still no good if the DSL FIFO
was full. I think I'm going to titrate the value for a while, until
I've got something I can live with.

suggests disabling DirPort if all else fails:

"If you have an asymmetric connection (upload less than download) such as a
cable modem, you should set BandwidthRate to less than your smaller
bandwidth (Usually that's the upload bandwidth). (Otherwise, you could drop
many packets during periods of maximum bandwidth usage -- you may need to
experiment with which values make your connection comfortable.) Then set
BandwidthBurst to the same as BandwidthRate. Since the BandwidthRate and
BandwidthBurst options only look at incoming bytes currently, you may find
that if you're still seeing too much outgoing traffic, you should turn off
your DirPort; most users don't need to do this though."
