Linux traffic shaping script
Posted on 2005-04-03
I need a fully customized script for traffic shaping in linux (using the tc program) that can split the traffic between 6 computers in the same lan. The linux server (redhat 9) has two NIC. The bandwidth is split equally between the computers that need traffic from internet. If it is only one computer online he gets all the bandwitdh, 2 computers > half bandwitdth, etc. I also need to prioritize the traffic for efficient bandwitdth management. The traffic for small ACK packets should have high priority, then the HTTP traffic and finally the downloads that require huge packets that slow down the conection. Also the must be a workaround so that the upload traffic doesn't slowdown the download traffic. Thank you all for help.
