HTB: quantum of class is big

When an error appears in the logs:

HTB: quantum of class 10001 is big. Consider r2q change.

You need to set a parameter for the shaper:

#accel-pp will calculate the value itself

How to rotate logs ?

You can use system logrotate utility for it. Put following file to /etc/logrotate.d

/var/log/accel-ppp/*.log {
              test -r /var/run/accel-pppd.pid && kill -HUP `cat /var/run/accel-pppd.pid`

I don’t see pppd processes, how to manually terminate session ?

Yes, in fact accel-ppp doesn’t use pppd because it has its own ppp implementation. To terminate session you may use three methods:

  1. Use cli (telnet or tcp):
By default telnet listens connections on 2000 port and tcp on 2001 port.
$ telnet 2000
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
accel-ppp version 1.5.0
accel-ppp# terminate if ppp0


$ echo 'terminate if ppp0' | nc -q0 2001

There are also other criterias to select session(s), use help cli command to get more information.

  1. Use radius Disconnect-Message:
$ echo 'NAS-Port=0' | radclient disconnect testing123
Received response ID 170, code 41, length = 20

and you can control it in logs:

[2012-01-21|16:48:55]:  info: ppp0: recv [RADIUS|Disconnect-Request id=aa <NAS-Port 0>]
[2012-01-21|16:48:55]:  info: ppp0: send [RADIUS|Disconnect-ACK id=aa]
  1. Use snmp:
$ snmpset -m +ACCEL-PPP-MIB -v 2c -c local ACCEL-PPP-MIB::termByIfName.0 = ppp0
