Dear me7me7,

LLQ is one of the Queuing tools or mechanisms and The Low Latency Queueing feature brings strict priority queueing to Class-Based Weighted Fair Queueing (CBWFQ). So it's Queuing tool not scheduler

The scheduler always serviced the highest-priority queue first. If there was always traffic in the high priority queue, the lower-priority queues were starved of bandwidth and packets going to non-priority queues.

Dear Mohamed,

I just wanna clarify more

LLQ is Queuing tool

-Queuing evaluates the packet/frame based on Cos or Tos..etc and determine in which queue the packet will be placed

-Scheduling service all the queues and distinguish between different queues based on its priority.

Best Regards,
