Summary0000692: Traffic Shaping
DescriptionThe interface for WonderShaper makes it look like you can cap Downlink Speed and Uplink speed at a certain rate. This isn't true (or doesn't work).
Additional InformationIncluding actual throttling settings is useful. Although traffic shaping is appropriate for most situations, throttles can prevent users from overstepping ISP quotas- for instance I have a 1.5Mbit satellite connection with a 17GB/30days ISP threshold (after which service is not guaranteed). I have to throttle to 128Kbit/s to keep my users from over stepping their bandwidth cap in a week.

A simple [tc qdisc add dev eth1 root handle ed:0 tbf rate 128kbit burst 5000 latency 100ms] did the trick for me, and then I use wondershaper to keep that 128kbits low latency during usage (eth1 is my DMZ, this throttles traffic into the DMZ).

A built in tool would be handy

Cheers, Ed
