I've had marginal success with Bandwidth Manager. I've been able to test it, and verify my upload and download bandwidth is being allocated correctly. With the new QoS manager in ClearOS 7, I have not. I have a Hot LAN hosting several servers with priorities 2-3. Other unimportant sources of bandwidth have been dropped to level 7. Everything else should be undermined by the priority 2 and 3 rules. Every single time a client downloads a file on the LAN, pings skyrocket on our servers and packets are dropped.I'd print out QoS settings, but I'm unsure how.
Thanks

    I would suggest using the QoS and Bandwidth module instead of the Bandwidth Manager. We've stopped development on the Bandwidth Manager and removed it from the marketplace because it is problematic/limited.

    You've mentioned a lack of support, so how does ClearOS support this need? Well, we fast tracked new technology with the Bandwidth and QoS Manager to replace the Bandwidth Manager which was problematic. If you insist on using the deprecated app I can assure you that you will encounter a lack of support.

    Nick's suggestion to use the Webconfig interface is spot on. Why? Because you cannot install the feature you want presently and those manual rules will never be produceable through the current UI. If you insist on manually editing a file related to QoS, the file that now controls QoS is /etc/clearos/qos.conf but the rules that you have are wholly incompatible as ClearOS 7 uses an entirely different technology for QoS based on IMQ.

    Nick, whether or not your last reply was directed towards me is unclear. What is clear, however, is the lack of support for ClearOS. I used to use ClearOS often and recommended it in my line of work. I no longer do so and tell people this for many reasons. First off, ClearOS lacks the reliability and robust behavior of its competitors. I used bandwidth manager with partial success throughout ClearOS's legacy, even back when it was ClarkConnect. ClearOS is bugger than ever, causing firewall panics after after a bare metal install. It's QoS just doesn't work. I moved to Ubiquiti and their Smart queue works in 2 button presses. Before you badger other people, stop and think about the circumstances that be and why we're inquiring. I should add the deal breaker for me was having to pay for an otherwise opensource list for Snort or Dansguardian. ClearOS isn't for me because it just doesn't work. Mind you I'm familiar with Linux and Unix, Pfsense, m0n0wall, Sonicwall, Sophos, JuneOS, etc. The best thing I can suggest to others is either Ubiquiti if you're looking for a turnkey solution, or some form of linux and iptables if you're familiar with CLIs. Thank you for the completely useless comment Nick.

    Please stop spamming every thread you can find with the same question.

    Have you tried using the Webconfig? With your rules, have you changed the interface name as it is no longer ethX?
