I’ve been doing more work with linux traffic control. I’m finding my earlier efforts are too complicated and end up introducing latency. My latest shaper is very simple. I decided I wanted to check in on the status of a couple of projects that can be used to classify p2p traffic.
- ipp2p – discontinued, recommends checking out opendpi: OpenDPI.org
- l7-filter – moved here: l7-filter | ClearFoundation
Though I’ve played with both of these in the past I’m not using either in production currently. Most p2p programs are well behaved enough to mark data transfers as bulk which makes shaping easy.
