     options ALTQ_LOCALQ
     options ALTQ_PRIQ
     options ALTQ_RED
     options ALTQ_RIO
     options ALTQ_WFQ

DESCRIPTION
     The altq framework provides several disciplines for queuing outgoing network packets.  While
     traffic shaping is perhaps the most prominent example, altq provides also other measures
     related to QoS.  The framework has been integrated to the pf(4) packet filter since
     NetBSD 4.0.

     At the implementation level altq modifies the interface packet queues.  Therefore the driver
     modifications described in altq(9) are required in order to use a certain network card with
     altq.

FILES
