    My Web Server Kills My Conection Speed...

    I've looked through all of the Apache documentation and have not found a way to limit upload speed. What programs do you people use (if you use any) to limit upload speed in linux?

    I use LARTC (Linux Advanced Routing and Traffic Control).

    It's not exactly easy to learn, but it's built into the kernel and comes with almost every Linux distribution.

    Basically, you create an iptables rule to mark all the packages that you wish to throttle, and then you set up some traffic control rules using the `tc' tool. Describing tc is far beyond the scope of a single post, however. I recommend the advanced routing HOWTO on

    Thanks to it, I was even able to create my own on-line traffic statistics graph. I think it's quite neat. =)
