Subject: inaccurate packet scheduling

Hi all.

Run one of the following 2 scripts on machine A:

#!/bin/bash
tc qdisc del dev eth0 root
sleep 1
tc -batch << EOF
qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 1: prio bands 2 priomap 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
qdisc add dev eth0 parent 1:1 handle 10: pfifo limit 50
qdisc add dev eth0 parent 1:2 handle 20 tbf latency 100ms rate 4mbit burst 2m
filter add dev eth0 parent 1: protocol ip u32 match ip dst $machineB_ip flowid 1:2
EOF

#!/bin/bash
tc qdisc del dev eth0 root
sleep 1
tc -batch << EOF
qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 1: prio bands 2 priomap 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
qdisc add dev eth0 parent 1:1 handle 10: pfifo limit 20
qdisc add dev eth0 parent 1:2 handle 20: pfifo limit 20
filter add dev eth0 parent 1: protocol ip pref 10 \
u32 match ip dst $machineB_ip \
flowid 1:2 \
police rate 4Mbit burst 2m conform-exceed drop
EOF

And run:
[machineB ~]# iperf -s
[machineA ~]# iperf -c machineB_ip -t 60

Expected results are: ~3.8-4.2 Mbits/s
But actual results are: ~130-170 Kbits/s with tbf, ~70-300 Kbits/s with policy rate

[machineA ~]# tc -s qdisc list dev eth0
qdisc prio 1: root refcnt 9 bands 2 priomap  0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

Tested with kernel pulled from linus's git today. This happens with older
kernels as well (I tried 2.6.32-based rhel6 kernels).

This happens to me on following machines:
HP DL360G8 (x86_64) http://people.redhat.com/jpirko/aThoo2Ei/dl380g8/
HP DL360G3 (i686) 
IBM JS22 (ppc64) http://people.redhat.com/jpirko/aThoo2Ei/ibmjs22/

On following machines, I do not observe this issue:
qemu kvm (x86_64)
IBM Zseries (s390x) http://people.redhat.com/jpirko/aThoo2Ei/ibmz/

Please ask in case you need me to provide any other details.

Thanks.

Jiri
