trickled - userspace bandwidth manager daemon
trickled [-h] [-v] [-V] [-f] [-s] [-d rate] [-u rate] [-t seconds]
[-l length] [-p priority] [-c file] [-n path] [-N seconds]
trickled is a userspace bandwidth manager daemon. trickled manages
several trickle(1) sessions at a time, shaping across multiple sessions.
The options are as follows:
-v Increases the verbosity level (can be specified multiple
-V Prints version.
-f Runs trickled in the foreground.
-s Uses syslog for all output (instead of stderr).
-d rate Limit the download bandwidth consumption to rate KB/s.
-u rate Limit the upload bandwidth consumption to rate KB/s.
-t seconds Set smoothing time to seconds s. The smoothing time
determines with what intervals trickled will try to let the
application transceive data. Smaller values will result in
a more continuous (smooth) session, while larger values may
produce bursts in the sending and receiving data. Smaller
values (0.1 - 1 s) are ideal for interactive applications
while slightly larger values (1 - 10 s) are better for
applications that need bulk transfer. This parameter is
customizable on a per-application basis via
trickled.conf(5). The default value is 5 s.
-l length Set smoothing length to length KB. The smoothing length is
a fallback of the smoothing time. If trickled cannot meet
the requested smoothing time, it will instead fall back on
sending length KB of data. The default value is 10 KB.
-p priority Set default priority to priority.
-c file Use the configuration file file. This file must be of the
format documented in trickled.conf(5).
-n path Set socket name to path. By default, trickled uses
-N seconds Notifies user of total bandwidth consumption every seconds
-w size Set peak detection window size to size KB. This determines
how aggressive trickled is at eliminating bandwidth
consumption peaks. Lower values will be more aggressive,
but may also result in over shaping. The default value (512
KB) is usually sufficient.
trickled -u 10 -d 20
Limit aggregate trickle(1) upload bandwidth consumption to 10 KB/s and
download consumption to 20 KB/s.
