QoS shaping parameters

Burst (bytes):
Maximum number of bytes that can be temporarily sent at the shaper rate in excess of the reservation rate. Usually you would not have to change anything here, the default is around 1400 bytes.

Unclassified Rate:
Minimum rate in kbps/percentage to reserve for unclassified traffic. Unclassified traffic would be the traffic that are not part of Reserved traffic (under ‘Quality Of Service Reservation’). The idea is to reserve some bandwidth so any of the prioritized/Reserved traffic does not take over the system. Since its a hierarchical model of traffic reservation, if there is no “Reserved” traffic flowing through the system, then the entire shaper bandwidth can be allocated to unclassified traffic.

Unclassified Buffer:
Maximum number of packets that can be buffered at any given time for unclassified traffic. If after setting the Shaper reserved rate for uplink and downlink, run speed test,etc to verify if you are receiving the rate that you have set it. If the rates are lower then you may want to increase the Unclassified buffer and verify if you are seeing the rate. For some ISPs we had to set this to 50 packets to achieve 100Mbps.

Unclassified Burst:
Maximum number of bytes that can be temporarily sent at the shaper rate in excess of the reservation rate for unclassified traffic. You should not have to change anything here unless you are not seeing the desire rate. Have not come across any scenario where I had to tweak this.
