trickle is an open source, lightweight and portable command-line application that can be used to shape your network bandwidth. It can be used in collaborative or standalone modes.

With trickle you will be able to “trick” the functionality required to send and receive packets through sockets, by limiting the network traffic. The software runs entirely in userspace.

trickle is a true cross-platform software that has been developed on the OpenBSD platform and tested under Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD and Solaris operating systems, supporting 32-bit, 64-bit, SPARC, SPARC64, MacPPC, and Alpha architectures.
