       CHOKe (CHOose and Keep for responsive flows, CHOose and Kill for  unresponsive  flows)  is  a  classless  qdisc
       designed  to  both identify and penalize flows that monopolize the queue.  CHOKe is a variation of RED, and the
       configuration is similar to RED.

       Once the queue hits a certain average length, a random packet is drawn from the  queue.   If  both  the  to-be-
       queued  and the drawn packet belong to the same flow, both packets are dropped.  Otherwise, if the queue length
       is still below the maximum length, the new packet has a configurable chance of being  marked  (which  may  mean
       dropped).   If  the queue length exceeds max , the new packet will always be marked (or dropped).  If the queue
       length exceeds limit , the new packet is always dropped.

       The marking probability computation is the same as used by the RED qdisc.

       The parameters are the same as for RED, except that RED uses bytes whereas choke counts packets. See  tc-red(8)
       for a description.
