By this I mean the applications automatically send
out their packets out of the box with appropriate dscp values
depending on their QoS requirements. While tc is one way of
achieving the same result, it is an external mechanism requiring a
seperate agent to configure diffserv.
My wish is, all the future netapps
from Linux should take advantage of QoS as applicable, naturally.
As I said, some (many) already do... QoS means different things to
different people. Nice idea in theory, in reality its not worth much
to acheive what you want.
