Bandwidth Shapers for the tc shy: trickle & wondershaper

Throttling Bandwidth with trickle & wondershaper

  • trickle
    Example trickle -d 512 palemoon -profile /mnt/sda4/PaleMoon/pmProfile
    limits download to 512 Kilobits/sec and curbs superfluous caching, although for some streaming sites notice no difference, so this must be their maximum streaming rate. :twisted:
    Code: Select all
    guest@porteus:~$ ls -lh  trickle-1.07.x86.64-pkg-8.xzm
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 32K Feb 23 02:06  trickle-1.07.x86.64-pkg-8.xzm

  • wondershaper
    Code: Select all
    guest@porteus:~$ ls -lh $t/wondershaper-1.1a.alt1-noarch-1.xzm
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8.0K Feb 15 20:39 p10/Por/tmp/wondershaper-1.1a.alt1-noarch-1.xzm
    Requires bit of initialization which haven't got round to doing. Would be interested in feedback. :)
    Code: Select all
    root@porteus:/home/guest# which wshaper
    root@porteus:/home/guest# file /usr/sbin/wshaper
    /usr/sbin/wshaper: symbolic link to ../../etc/wondershaper/wshaper
    root@porteus:/home/guest# file /etc/wondershaper/wshaper
    /etc/wondershaper/wshaper: Bourne-Again shell script, ASCII text executable

    root@porteus:/home/guest# wshaper status
    Please read the documentation in README first :-)
    sudo wondershaper eth0 1000 200

    This limits the download limit to 1000 kilobits and uplaod to 200 kilobits.

    To reset, use: sudo wondershaper clear eth0
