[ovs-dev] Hierarchical egress scheduler for OVS-DPDK

I was wondering if anyone is working on some kind of hierarchical egress 
scheduler for OVS-DPDK?

I did see a patch from Zhao, https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/793159/ 
adding multiple queues. However, this will not allow minimum bandwidth 
guarantees among multiple queues (well it could be, but the bandwidth 
would be reserved, not shared @idle time). In addition, the patchset 
seems to be dead...

Guess I'm looking for something similar to the linux-htb for the kernel 

If found some emails from Gayathri hinting that they are working on it, 
but no patches:


If no one is working on this, I'll try to see if I can make some time to 
work on this.

If anyone has prior attempts please share your thoughts/experiences.
