how to build my own packet shaper on linux ?

hi

I would like to build my own packet shaper
on linux debian.

I need to shape mainly 3 protocols:
HTTP/HTTPS 40%
ICA 50%
Printing 10%

knows someone how it should work,
or is it any free linux shaper
as a fixed solution to download ?

kind regards
chris

It's reasonably easy, you just need to do a bit of reading.

There's an advanced routing howto available which talks about 'tc', the traffic shaping tool. ( http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Adv-Routing-HOWTO/index.html , chapter 9 in particular ).

It discusses everything you need.

you can use MRTG to get your traffic usage:

and you can use traffic shape utilities which are part of iproute2 package.

check 'man tc' for more information on this.

Hope this helps,
