Can you give some hints on which logs you would like to see?

The children's ceil rate is 70% of the parent 1:2 class rate.

Unfortunately its difficult for me to play with classes as its real traffic. 
I'll try to get a traffic generator.

I don't think its sfq, since I have the same sfq qdiscs with HSFC.

Also I'm comparing this to my production HTB box has with esfq 
and no bond (just eth), esfq also has 127p limit.

I tried to get rid of bond on the outbound traffic, I balanced traffic
via eth0 and eth2 manually by splitting routes going through them.

I still had the same issue with HTB not reaching the full speed.

I'm going to try testing exactly the same configuration on 2.6.29 as I have
on tonight. The only difference would be that I use sfq(dst) instead of
esfq(dst) which is not available on 2.6.29.
