This project implemented a Mice and Elephants queuing discipline on Linux. The purpose of the Mice and Elephants Queuing Discipline is to improve the response time over a congested network. A Mice and Elephants Queuing Discipline achieves this by favouring short traffic flows over long traffic flows. The project had two aims. The first aim was to produce a Mice and Elephants router. The second was to explore and document a method of creating Linux queueing disciplines in general. The talk will explain what network queuing disciples are, what is a Mice and Elephants queuing discipline and what benefits can be obtained by using such queuing disciplines. It will give an overview of how queuing disciplines are implemented on Linux. It will look at difficulties encountered in the creation of Linux queuing disciplines and how these were overcome. Finally, I will show the results obtained in testing these queuing disciplines on Linux.
