Bandwidth throttling


So there can be two solutions to my issue. I need to limit bandwidth on my server.

I'm using pure-ftpd for my ftp server. I know you can allocate bandwidth for virtual users, does anyone have an example on how to do this and what it looks like in the virtual user file.

Also is there a tool that can let me allocate/throttle bandwidth per network device?

like eth0 gets 500k, eth1 gets 1000k, and wifi gets 200k?

cheers

I believe you might be interested in tc for managing traffic control settings.

Linux Advanced Routing & Traffic Control has more details on the subject.
