     trickled - userspace bandwidth manager daemon

     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.
