The paper presents the simulation results of the comparison of three Queuing Mechanisms, First in First out (FIFO), Priority Queuing (PQ), and Weighted Fair Queuing (WFQ). Depending on their effects on the network’s Routers, the load of any algorithm of them over Router’s CPUs and memory usage, the delay occurred between routers when any algorithm has been used and the network application throughput. This comparison explains that, PQ doesn’t need high specification hardware (memory and CPU) but when used it is not fair, because it serves one application and ignore the other application and FIFO mechanism has smaller queuing delay, otherwise PQ has bigger delay.
