[ovs-discuss] Queue added to ports but not being used

I've restarted the daemon. I saw the logs being stored elsewhere, with the correct version. The queue is inserted and how many packets passed through it.

However the command 'sudo ovs-ofctl queue-get-config s1 s1-eth2
' gives me the output 
'queue 0:
However as you may see the actions I did in mininet since i started the topology: http://pastebin.com/RwvV3K10
After I've defined the rates I created an enqueue action when flows went from s1->s2 and s2->s1. After that I did iperf and bandwidth was too low (around 500kb) and iperf took like 1 minute. After that I just used the action output:<port> in order to have connectivity and then I had around 10mb. Note that when link is not specified in mininet links are around 10Gpbs.

FYI I added the queues in another tab, but essencially the command was this one: "sudo ovs-vsctl -- set port s1-eth2 qos=@newqos -- --id=@newqos create qos type=linux-htb other-config:max-rate=10000000 queues:0=@newQ -- --id=@newQ create queue other-config:min-rate=150000 other-config:max-rate=250000". I added the same configuration to s1 and s2 switches on port the ports that connect those switches.

Is that normal behaviour ?

I don't know how to help without the log.  I guess you'll have to
figure out what's going on there first.
