View Full Version : [all variants] Limiting Bandwidth for my server

February 4th, 2009, 03:51 AM

My Dedicated server provider has an unusual way of doing bandwidth measuring. They will charge you 95% of your maximum speed as if it was constant over the whole month (even if its not).

After getting a large bandwidth bill even though I didnt exceed the download limit, I figured a way to get around this would be to limit my speed to 3Mbps (3Mbps constant over the whole month is my allocated download limit of 1000GB).

How would I go about doing this? What tools can I use to say limit the total bandwidth speed of eth0?
