Port 80 (HTTP) issue



  • hello guys,

    i got confused for port 80.
    port 80 was used for browsing webpage, while in this port, user can download any application.

    how i can limit port 80 for download leecher ?
    i set the traffic shaper at qp2p_up n qp2p_down in 64Kb
    it work for leecher, limit the downloader about 64Kb

    but for net surfer, 64Kbps seems like to slow…. i need it set to about 256Kb

    how can it set in traffic shaper?

    thanks



  • no one suggestion ??? :(



  • I think maybe you can set it to burst traffic for xx milliseconds, if this is set correctly then web-surfers will get xx bandwidth for xx milliseconds, allowing a typical page to download fast. But after xx milliseconds it will slow down, this would kind of make downloads slow.

    I think this is correct, do a search for burst.



  • bursting is a good idea, but consider the worst case like this:

    • i have 20 pc stations, but temporary only 10 actives
    • i only have 1Mbps downlink
    • if i limit 64kbps, burst 128kbps…, it means i must be had 128kbpsx10stations = 1280kbps which mean i dont have enough bandwidth :(

    That doesn't work like that. Those numbers are maximum values for the whole queue, not for individual users.

  • so thats not a good method that i need…



  • Have you at least tested it to see?



  • finally, after several trial n error, i decided use squid… there is an option , which is throttle bandwidth...



  • One problem with using bursting to "prioritize" web browsing over http downloads is that you need to set a hard upper limit as m2, meaning that even if there is only 1 client online, he can only use that limited bandwidth to download, which is a bit of a waste IMO.

    It would be nice if there was some way to give a higher priority to bursts without having to specify a hard limit, so that the full bandwidth could be used at all times…
