[Bridge] Kernel tuning for bridge machines

We are running a Linux box with 10g interfaces as a bridging firewall.

We have mostly long-distance TCP data transfers, but also some real-time 
traffic (video, voice)

I've read conflicting suggestions on how to tune kernel parameters - up 
for data, or down for VoIP, but those are mainly aimed at endpoints.

Are there any recommendations for tuning for a bridge ?
