access-group 159 is an access-list that tells what hosts this applys to.
384000 bps, the fastest the traffic should flow
256000000 burst - How many packets should travel in 1/8 of a second normally, should be 48000
256000000 max burst  - how much traffic can excessly burst in 1/8 a second, again should be smaller
conform-action transmit - If traffic stays before this criteria tranmit
exceed drop - if it exceeds drop the traffic.

So this two are too big?
The person who made this script says that after the user download 250 mb (256000000) the bandwidth is limited to 384000 bps.

This is false?

Yeah its false.

Rate-limiting is only used to shape traffic that is going to fast, it has no consideration for how much a user is downloading however if they start downloading faster then 384k they will be slowed down.


The numbers are way too big as of right now they could download at 256000000 kbs before anything is done.
