A new release of ALTQ is available from
ALTQ -- Version 2.1
December 29, 1999
This is a release of Alternate Queueing for BSD UNIX. ALTQ provides
queueing schemes required to realize resource-sharing and quality of
service. The ALTQ release is intended to be a flexible platform to
promote network research and gain field experience.
What's New since version 2.0:
- altqstat: discipline independent stat program
- improved link-sharing performance for ethernet
- rsvp support using CBQ and HFSC
- FreeBSD-3.4R based. 2.2.8R and 3.3R are also supported.
- initial support of OpenBSD-2.6 (in addition to NetBSD-1.4.1)
only i386 architecture is supported
IMPORTANT CHANGES since 2.0:
as we now have multiple platforms and the number of disciplines is
increasing, it is time to reorganize the directory configuration.
1. a new kernel directory, "sys-altq/altq", is created.
altq kernel files previously placed under "net" and "netinet"
are moved into "sys-altq/altq".
***THIS CHANGE AFFECTS ALL 3RD PARTY SOURCE CODE***
please update #include path!
(e.g., #include <netinet/altq.h> --> #include <altq/altq.h>)
2. a device file directory, "/dev/altq", is create.
altq device files previously placed under "/dev" are moved
(e.g., /dev/cbq --> /dev/altq/cbq)
***DON'T FORGET TO RUN MAKEDEV.altq***
3. discipline specific programs are no longer required.
they are placed under "legacy-tools" directory.
because of the above changes, sources (and binaries) for altq-2.0
are NOT COMPATIBLE with altq-2.1.
The following items are still missing in 2.1.
- more drivers for NetBSD
- cpu architecture other than i386
