Squid delay pools

Hi All,

I am trying to limit the users to have maximum of 64kbps speed, for that i have configured the delay pools in the following way

delay_pools 2
delay_class 2 2
delay_access 2 allow all
delay_parameters 2 -1/-1 8000/8000

But I am still getting 1.5Mbps speed when I download anything. Currently there is no user accessing this server as this is being tested and it is having 10Mbps of bandwidth.

Please tell me why I am not able to restrict the download speed..........

Thanks in anticipation.....

change the following line
delay_parameters 2 -1/-1 8000/8000

with this one

delay_parameters 2 8000/8000 2500/2500

when you will try to download file having size more than 25KB it will limits your bandwidth
