    Wink download detection

    hi...I am new please be gentle with me since I am a newbie...

    I stumbled upon a question....

    How can I detect whent a user starts to download a file on port 80 or an ftp ...
    and if I can how can I alocate a greater amount of bandwidth so he can download faster e.g. speed bursting.....
    to be more explicit ...if a user has 10 Mbps normaly....when he starts to download I want to give him for an amount of time or the whole time he downloads the file lets say 20Mbps....

    Can I do that ?... and if so how ...

    Thank you in advance for your posts

    apache2 would write such queries into the access logs. you could watch these files and when you detect that one starts a download trigger the actions you need.
