vsftpd and bandwidth limiting


I have a ubuntu server running vsftpd and notice that when anyone is either uploading to it or downloading from it, I get very high latencies. I was hopping to throttle it by setting a max upload and download speed, but haven't been able to figure out how. Does anyone know how I would accomplish this?

man vsftpd.conf
Quote:
local_max_rate
The maximum data transfer rate permitted, in bytes per second, for local authenticated users.

Default: 0 (unlimited)
Pretty much self explanatory
