Bandwidth control

Hi all,

Can anyone help me ?

We have a 2 Mbit DSL, a 16 IP subnet routed on a linux server and there are a 3 Servers, a NAT-Router and 2 Clients

Now it shoud work so, that the 3 Servers have a higher priority and should able to use most of the bandwidth (~85%) when anyone connect to one of them (each server shoud get same speed when more connections one diverent servers) and the clients should only get the left speed (~15%)

but whem there are no connections to the servers the clients (NAT and direct) should be able to use the full speed - 10% (to left a minimum bandwidth to be fast enough for incoming connections to the servers)

is it possible to realize this with linux, and how can I get it to work ??

best thanks for your help

errrmmm... don't know what's in it, and whether it can help you do what you've described but there is a bandwidth limiting howto on the ldp pages:

Good luck, reetep.

thx but I still know this howto and the way with CBQ but so it is only possible to limit the bandwidth to a solid value and not temporery when anyone connect to a server

I'm not sure what you mean by solid value, but the situation you described in your first post is completely doable using CBQ.
I'd make two main classes: one for servers (with guaranteed 85% of the bandwitch) and clients (min 15%, ceil 90%). Then second level classes would divide bandwith between servers. It's also a good idea to do the same for users.
