 Traffic shaping and bandwidth management

"Before actually building a real traffic shaping solution, you should propably profile your bandwidth usage. See what applications are used and what are their requirements in terms of bandwidth (reliability, throughput, delay) and how to 'detect' them (source/destination ports and TOS fields should cover almost any case). Just tinkering and adjusting things all around the place could work, but any serious IT person will happily preach the importance of analysis and documentation and abiding project and whatnot. And they are propably right too, so do that."
