This memo presents the FQ-CoDel hybrid packet scheduler and Active
Queue Management (AQM) algorithm, a powerful tool for fighting
bufferbloat and reducing latency.

FQ-CoDel mixes packets from multiple flows and reduces the impact of
head-of-line blocking from bursty traffic.  It provides isolation for
low-rate traffic such as DNS, web, and videoconferencing traffic.  It
improves utilisation across the networking fabric, especially for
bidirectional traffic, by keeping queue lengths short, and it can be
implemented in a memory- and CPU-efficient fashion across a wide
range of hardware.

This document is a product of the Active Queue Management and Packet Scheduling Working Group of the IETF.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
Internet community.  It does not specify an Internet standard of any
kind. Discussion and suggestions for improvement are requested.
Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
