#727 closed defect (fixed)

NEW: throttled-0.2.9

Reported by: opendarwin@… Owned by: macports-tickets@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.0
Keywords: Cc:



the portfile can be found here:

Description: throttled is a bandwidth limitation daemon for getting the most out of your connection by setting a lower priority on bandwidth hungry connections, like huge downloads, p2p tools, etc. It works under Darwin, FreeBSD and Linux.


Comments: I've wrote a patch for the startup-script, so it works with 'start/stop/restart' parameters needed in "${prefix}/etc/rc.d/". The authors claim that it works under Darwin, FreeBSD and Linux, but I dont know how well it will work with Linux. as the startup-script uses ipfw; they claim it works with iptables, so the init-script form this port will be useless on systems w/o ipfw, nevertheless the daemon itself should work. It would be cool, if someone could write an alternate 'throttled-init' for Linux sometime. Propably this will work under other OSs, too, but I'm unaware of the routing/firewall tools of OpenBSD, Solaris, etc.
