Control the ssh speed


I want to use ssh to copy some large files to remote server via the leased line , as I don't want to affect the connection between the servers , can I control the transfer speed of ssh eg. lower the speed to half of normal .

Thx

You can use scp with the '-l' option, from the man page:

Quote:
Limits the used bandwidth, specified in Kbit/s.
eg.

scp -l 80 my_big_file localhost:/tmp

..will transfer at 10KB/s

cheers

I've had varying success with trickle:

By varying, I mean that it was working well for a few months, then inexplicably (perhaps because I didn't care enough to dig deeper...) quit working.

cheers,

There's no bandwidth control in rsync that I'm aware of... there is a rate limiting module for iptables (ipt_limit.o) but I haven't used it so can't give you any useful advice regarding

cheers
