Control bandwidth usage of a Linux based OS

Ever wonder how to throttle bandwidth utilization without having dependency on proxy servers etc… Here is the simplest solution to control bandwidth on the Linux platform.

If you’re on Debian based Linux platform install the below package and set the bandwidth on the interfaces.

aptitude install wondershaper

Goto terminal and run the below command

wondershaper eth0 1000 500

Syntax: wondershaper {interface} {Download Speed in KB} {Upload Speed in KB}

Those who are still using Window$, I’ve pity on you… You need to pay and install OS, exe’s and end up installing anti-virus SW to avoid issues with viruses, malware etc… Switch to Linux and have a trouble free compute platform.

Happy Ganesha Chaturthi!!!
