 +# Queueing Discipline / Packet Scheduler
 +
 +A queueing discipline / packet scheduler is a network function that distributes available [bandwidth](/​glossary/​b/​bandwidth) to different connections according to an algorithm.
 +
 +The management is done by deciding how many [packets](/​glossary/​p/​packet) each connection is handed, by handling the device traffic queue and making prioritizing incoming/​ingress or outgoing/​egress packets.
 +
 +The scheduling can be done either by automatically,​ based on observed traffic, or following rules according to a [Quality Of Service](/​glossary/​q/​qos) protocol such as [Intserv](/​glossary/​i/​intserv) or [DiffServ](/​glossary/​d/​diffserv).
