After running several simulations it is easy to think that the best option in traffic management is having CBR source because the number of lost packets and the variations of received packets have minimum fluctuations. But the truth is that it is almost impossible to maintain this kind of level of efficacy in network where the packets present different sizes, lengths, even they are not transmitted at the same time, and, the most important thing is the types of traffic are also variable in each connection. Finally the best option is to implement a fair discipline like SFQ where all the active links are serviced according with the amount of information needed.
