Hi.

I have a Linux Red Hat (Fedora core 3) based environment, running Squid as proxy. Each is user is assigned an ID and Password for browsing.

Some of the users are consuming a lot more bandwidth than rest of the users.

I want a freeware software to equally distribute the available bandwidth between the users. Please mention the names and URLs of such software.

Thank you.

Hi pablouruguay.

I've already setup delay pools but they are not suitable in my case.

Assuming I have 1024Kbps of bandwidth and 2 users are using it then the bandwidth should be shared equally between these users as 512Kbps (50%) each. If another 2 users start using the internet then each user should get 256Kbps (25%) each.

Delay pools are not useful in this case, therefore I'm looking for a freeware software to manage this.

I know nothing about CBQ and really couldn't find much on it other than theory papers (probably was just not using the right keywords in my googling).  If you can elaborate on why CBQ will do what jazzzz20 is trying to accomplish, I'm sure the moderator will give you the points.  Just that I couldn't find any evidence in my searches denoting it would do the job in this scenario.

Thanks

Although I came across that link, I wasn't able to figure out if it was capable of doing what jazzzz20 was wanting:

>>Assuming I have 1024Kbps of bandwidth and 2 users are using it then the bandwidth should be shared equally between these users as >>512Kbps (50%) each. If another 2 users start using the internet then each user should get 256Kbps (25%) each.

If you say it will, then I definitely change my recommendation to accept your comment numbered 17093128.
