Just set up QOS on Tomato but it's not working quite right. I'm trying to prioritise SSH traffic over "bulk" traffic... so "bulk" traffic uses all upstream when SSH is idle, but let SSH traffic use all available upstream when in use.
So first question, on QOS->Basic Settings, what does the first column of percentages do? The second column makes sense ("maximum percentage of upstream allowed for this class"), and for lowest-priority it does indeed cap bulk traffic at 60% of 800kbps. I don't understand what the "2%" does.
Second issue... my current setup is almost doing the Right Thing. The bulk traffic is indeed capped at 60%, but when I start SSH traffic it does not exceed the remaining unused 40%. The desired result is to let SSH dominate and use 90%+ of upstream, and essentially stall the bulk traffic. How would one adjust the settings make it do that?
Here are my settings,
