description="""
[ALTQ](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ALTQ) (ALTernate Queueing) is
an optional network packet scheduler for BSD systems. It provides various
queueing disciplines and other quality of service (QoS) related
components required to control resource usage.

It is currently integrated in
[[!template id=man name="pf" section="4"]]
.

Unfortunately it was written a long time ago and it suffers from a lot
of code duplication, dangerous code practices and can use improvements
both in the API and implementation. After these problems have been addressed
it should be integrated with
[[!template id=man name="npf" section="4"]]
.
