This Open Source project provides a lightweight and portable bandwidth shaper for Linux
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.
