Gradual Epiphany

Trickle

If you’ve ever used bittorrent to grab the TV show you forgot to record with a TiVo, you know that it can seriously monopolize your net connection with outbound traffic. Looking for some way to limit the upload rate, I ran across a very cool little tool: trickle. It’s a userspace traffic shaper that allows you to control at a Kb/s level how much up/down bandwidth an app is using.

Very handy.
