Such method doesn't work for the traffic itself. It works for the processes (one with worser priority will not get so muh processor time, so won't send so many packets). You may experiment with traffic shaping. Search for htb, cbq or similar mechanisms (the questions happen from time to time, and, what's also important, the setup is not that hard).
