Bekijk de volledige versie : Limit upload speed

Does anyone have any knowledge of a program I can install on my box to limit the upload speed?

I have a limit on the amount of data I can upload/download so I need to be carefull what I do with it. Therefore I should like to limit this when I download big files over night.

It's not that I don't want to share, I just have to be carefull with it.

Belgium, you know...

wondershaper ;)

I've been working with the wondershaper on the kfurge custom firmware and have run into issues. I'm not sure if it has to do with the version of iptables and iproute installed in the kernel but I couldn't get it to throttle only ftp traffic. It would throttle all inbound and outbound traffic to the same max speed.

But... post your efforts and if you get it to work share with the group please!

BTW the built in GUI bandwidth manager does not seem to work on the custom firmware (basically it applies the filtered ports/ip's to different qdisc's than the qdisc's that have the limited bandwidth with the end effect of no throttling).

Here's the thread (from the wl-500g forums) that has some info about wondershaper if you were interested further.


My last entry is on page 9 with examples of syntax, script, results from launch and status results. ( can see it here http://wl500g.info/showthread.php?t=752&page=9 )

Hope you have better luck than I did.
