I have no experience with NetEqualizer, but we've used a Packeteer
PacketShaper here for many years.  I wouldn't say that frequent fine tuning
has been necessary, but that will vary with how you set it up, like any
product.  Certainly some amount of regular monitoring is necessary,
especially when looking for new classifications and the like, but for the
most part it's pretty trouble-free for us.
