Shape linux traffic easily: wondershaper

Taken from MAN pages:

wondershaper is a traffic shaping script that provides low latency, prioritizes bulk transfers below normal web traffic, prioritizes interactive shells above normal web traffic, and attempts to prevent upload and download traffic from affecting each other’s ack packets. Put simply, the wondershaper makes your internet connection more “responsive”.


apt-get install wondershaper

Check interfaces:
