Quality of Service Traffic Control

The Quality of Service (QOS) Traffic Control component implements traffic profiling on the local host computer through a system of flows and filters. A flow is essentially a traffic profile specified in the token bucket and leaky bucket model, while a filter is a pattern that uniquely identifies the traffic belonging to this flow.

The basic functionality of this component is traffic shaping. The application can send data at any rate, but the packets are sent from the host according to the profile specified for the flow.
