Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am trying to figure out a way a method which might decrease the speed of internet gradually in my office LAN.
At 9am- 6 pm daily it is 55 Kbps,
From 6pm -7 pm daily it is 5 Kbps
Finally it becomes 55 kbps again at 7 pm
I changed squid.conf like this below
acl day time 18:00:19:00
delay_access 1 allow innove day
delay_access 2 allow innove day
delay_class 2 2
delay_parameters 2 5000/500000 5000/500000
delay_class 1 2
delay_parameters 1 55000/100000 55000/100000
It seems to work for new transfers made after 6pm.
BUT ,when I started downloading a software at 5:50 pm,its initial speed was 50Kbps and it continued to be that even after 6:10 pm when downloading finished(but i had hoped that it should be dropping to lower speed ..below 5k)
When i started downloading another file at 6:05 pm it stared at speed of around 4k which was fine.
SO DOES this imply,that once a file was being downloaded,it continues to have it's same transfer rate even after the timing of low bandwidth speed become effective.
OR it was my observation mistake
OR my configuration is wrong.
Basically the idea is to make the employees of an organisation know that it is time of office closing(indicated by drop in internet surfing) & they can go home.
After 7 pm , internet speed is again increased as it needed to run some cron jobs.
