rapeepak - Got a real-world example?  I can tell you how to do it, but I will warn you in advance, the docs leave everything to be desired, so don't place too much faith in them.

The command 'tc' in linux (part of the iproute2 tools) will do it (in conjunction with 'iptables' or the 'ip' commands), but it is a rather cryptic interface.  If you can provide more specifics, I can probably help you work out a solution.  I've gotten things working along the lines of dedicated bandwidth for certain services, and the rest given to the rest of services, but the critical services can 'borrow' bandwidth from the non-critical services, etc.  There is a lot of potential here...

BTW, the Advanced Routing Howto (URL posted above) is indeed about the best reference, but it [the documentation] is still rather crappy.

Please clarify.
