WFQ on a DS3?

We upgraded from several T1's to a partial DS3 (18Mb) to the Internet. Our router is a 7204VXR. The default queueing mechanism is FIFO because of the interface speed. Would it be beneficial to any of the flows if we enabled weighted fair-queueing instead? Any reason not to?

WFQ allows low bandwidth flows (like telnet, HTTP, etc.) to have better treatment on a link than high bandwidth flows (FTP, CIFS, etc.). So when there are a lot of flows/connections on an interface, the high traffic flows don't starve out the low traffic flows. If your interface is taking a lot of traffic, WFQ may help you out some. It is enabled with the "fair-queue" command on an interface or a policy-map.
