hi,

I live in a flat share. We all sit behind a router and share the internet connection. A cohabitant of me has big problems with playing computer games online when I download sth for example during a emerge or when I download some files with sftp from university. Is there a possibility to limit my speed to - let's say - max 100 K/s?

bandwidth is how much you use.

I think you're trying to limit your speed? :?

Knue, there are several possibilies, simpler ones and advanced ones :D

A simple solution would be to use a userspace traffic limiter such as "trickle". With this you can specify the maximum speed in kb/s for a single application, for example firefox oder another download manager. If I remember correctly this is pretty easy and simple.

A more sophisticated solution would be to install a fully fledged traffic shaper on a router; this would allow to distribute the bandwith to a number of computers on your local network. It would be possible to priorize gaming services or hosts in your network to regular services or other hosts. As far as I know IP-Tables / ("hierarchical token bucket filter")and recent kernels are capable of such functions.


Hope this is of some help to you.

Rgds,

Copy the above to "trickle-1.07.ebuild" and stick it in your portage overlay.

To create a portage overlay, follow these instructions http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Installing_3rd_Party_Ebuilds.

Then download the patch from http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/t/trickle/trickle_1.07-4.diff.gz and copy it to the "Files" directory in the portage overlay.

Thank you very much.
The ebuild worked great for me and
Code:
trickle -d 100 emerge foobar

did the trick (or should I better say the trickle :lol: ) for me.

However. I do not quite understand the demon mode. I want to limit normal downloads with konqueror or kget, too. And
Code:
trickle -d 100 konqueror

does not work.

Hi there.

I'm trying to get that ebuild to work but it isn't going as smooth as I'd hoped.

This is the error I get when trying to run the 'ebuild /usr/local/portage/net-misc/trickle/trickle-1.07.ebuild digest':
Code:
!!! ERROR: net-misc/trickle-1.07 failed.
Call stack:
  ebuild.sh, line 1535:   Called source '/usr/local/portage/net-misc/trickle/trickle-1.07.ebuild'
' trickle-1.07.ebuild, line 19:   Called inherit 'eutils' '
  ebuild.sh, line 1257:   Called die
 
.eclass could not be found by inherit()
!!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, and the call stack if relevant.


And this is what I get when I try to run the ebuild file through bash.
Code:

I really can't figure this one out so I hope someone out there can assist me.

Yours sincerely

You had a line wrap in there. The line that starts with "# $Header: /var/www/..." endsi wth "halcy0n dead $", not with ".ebuild,v"

Thanks for you resposne, thought I'm note quite sure what you mean. Can I make you elaborate? I've tried various things in order to figure out exactly what you meant, but I still can't get it to work.

Thanks in advance

To set a limit on your D/L rates for emerges, you can define a couple of variables in your make.conf file (this suggestion specifically uses wget, the default file downloader for emerge):
Code:
FETCHCOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget --limit-rate=100k \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"
RESUMECOMMAND="/usr/bin/wget -c --limit-rate=100k \${URI} -P \${DISTDIR}"

There are lots of other nice goodies you can add too; just refer to 'wget --help' or 'man wget'.

I am trying to install trickle-1.06 or trickle-1.07, and I get this error:

the command at line 4 is:

inherit eutils


It seems this command is not known on my system. If I run it manually, I also get error:
Quote:
Server trickle # inherit eutils
-su: inherit: command not found


Anyone knows what package I need to install in order to be able to run the "inherit" command ?

thank you in advance,

inherit() is a function defined in /usr/lib/portage/bin/ebuild.sh. It is trying to load something with no name, is there an empty inherit line in the ebuild?

what's the status of trickle? 1.07 even with "-9" patch from debian unstable fails to compile (some automake error complaining about automake versino mismatch 1.10.1 - 1.10.3, but 1.10.1 is not in portage anymore).
