Any other pfsense users out there? How do you traffic shape your rclone traffic?
My setup is I use rclone to stream from gdrive and to backup files off my local server. I want to be able to prioritise my rclone traffic but I can't figure out how to include it in my traffic shaping rules.
At the moment I'm just using simple PRIQ shaping and assigning traffic to queues.
you can setup your computer with another local ip address on the network card and use this flag --bind string Local address to bind to for outgoing connections, IPv4, IPv6 or name
and have your router prioritize that local ip address
In my opinion the most important thing for a home connection is not to fill up your upload and download 100%.
If you do you'll be creating queues in the ISP's router and your router which will kill interactivity and blocks ACKs for downloads and generally kills connectivity.
I do this by capping the upload and download at 90% (say) of their maximum rate, and I also prioritise small packets to keep the ACKs flowing through the local queues and to keep interactive sessions low latency.
Update on shaping: working perfectly so far. I've bound my mounts to a high-priority IP and my uploads to a low priority IP, even lower than torrents etc as there's no rush to upload them and over the course of a day my transfer is high enough
