I can't speak to the queuing parameters so much, but do have one
question: What do you plan to do if your traffic shaper needs
rebooted, loses power, or some other change resets the queuing
state/counters? I think you'll still need some external monitoring to
keep track of what throughputs you've used so far during the billing
period, and make sure you don't exceed your targeted thresholds.
