This is more of a "me bad at math" I'm sure.
Okay, I have a 871W router at the house. I enabled QoS and policing for bittorrent traffic. I started a download of a linux iso, and I got outrageous speed (almost 600kbps).
My config is like this:
class-map match-any BITTORRENT
match protocol bittorrent
service-policy output OUTBOUND
When I do a "show policy-map int fa4", I show tons of packets being dropped, so I "know" the config is working.
My question is more of a mathematical question:
The first option is in bps (8000 - some ungodly number)
The second and third options are BYTES per second. I'm having a hard time trying to figure these out. I "figured" that setting it at 8000 would mean 8k, but why would I get up to 600k in transfer rate?
I'm VERY new to QoS, but I'm really interested in getting it to work properly.
