I use SQM on my home router. I know that cake supports layer_cake and piece_of_cake scripts. My question is what are the practical differences between those two? I've seen that most people here is using piece_of_cake with cake instead of layer_cake. Why is that? Is the performance that huge between those two? I tried to test this but I didn't see any real difference.
I thought that layer_cake is better because it's recognizes different categories of traffic instead putting everything in one category like piece_of_cake is doing. Can someone help me out understand this, maybe with some basic examples in which case use one of those algorithms is better then the other?
