Using Squid with Limiters To Restrict Bandwidth



  • Hi all,

    I've got the Squid proxy setup on one my LAN interfaces and I would like to limit the download and upload bandwidth of the proxy.  I've already setup limiters and the necessary queues for this, but I'm not quite sure how to apply them properly so that the proxy's bandwidth is actually limited.  If I just apply the limiters/queues to the firewall rule on the LAN interface that allows outbound traffic I would just be limiting traffic from the client to the proxy, but not from the proxy to the internet (which is what I'm trying to do).  Is there perhaps a way to capture the Squid traffic with a floating firewall rule somehow and direct it to the limiter/queues I've set up?

    Thanks in advance for your help, I really appreciate it.
