DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

Does traffic prioritisation work with QoS disabled? 

It definitely still detect the high priority traffic, as indicated by the red light but I was wondering if it still applies that prioritisation with the QoS feature disabled.

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

If you use Bandwidth Allocation on default then it basically isn't doing anything so you can ignore that. You need to re-enable QoS from the Anti-Bufferbloat menu, then select Never on Anti-Bufferbloat. Traffic Prioritization will then work.

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

What firmware version are you on exactly and how did you disable QoS specifically?

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

Firmware version: XR500 V2.3.2.66

 

And I disabled QoS via the QoS page. I clicked on the 33 horizontal lines in the left corner of the 'Anti-Bufferbloat' section and checked the box 'Disable QoS'

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

In that case yes Traffic Prioritization should be disabled, do the packets continue to count upwards or is it just the lights that appear on?

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

The packets remain at 0 with the light on. Is there a way to disable QoS while keeping the traffic prioritisation?

Ah okay then it is successfully disabled, most likely the light was on prior to disabling and it got stuck on. If you set Congestion Control to Never then it won't limit your speeds/try to control the network and then you can use Traffic Prioritization exclusively.

Ah, that's great! Where abouts in the OS will I find this setting?

Sorry I meant Anti-Bufferbloat - the panel where you disabled QoS completely originally.

Re: DumaOS Traffic Prioritisation

So does make it so that it doesn't use the graph where you allocate download and upload bandwidth for each device?

And if I disable QoS through the buffer bloat, it doesn't count the prioritised packets, it stay on zero. So is it definitely still working even though it doesn't count them? Sorry, I'm confused
