the error’s confirmed by support and should be corrected in the official readthedocs-manual soon.
Since I’m probably not the only one who occasionally uses the old Vyatta 6.x docs for reference i also post the error here. The Vyatta traffic shaper documentation states: “priority: The priority with which this traffic class should be allocated extra bandwidth. The range is 0 to 7, where the lower the number the lower the priority. The default is 0”
That is incorrect and the order’s actually the other way round - priority 0 is the highest priority and gets serviced first, 7 is lowest priority and gets serviced last.
