Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator is a turn-key tool to distribute bandwidth on busy networks.
Version: 9.62Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator allows beginning-to-advanced network administrators to control bandwidth. It is designed to be completely turn-key in its default configuration. You just plug it into your network trunk, and it self configures and immediately starts slowing "bandwidth hogs".
Operating System: Linux
It can be configured to target specific applications such as Kazaa, IMAP, and POP. It is compatible with the 2.4.25 kernel, ebtables, and brouter (bridging router). It also comes with denial of service protection.
Here are some key features of "Linux Bandwidth Arbitrator":
· Default mode is turnkey
· Fully Redundant using Linux built-in Bridging
· Plug it in, no administration needed
· Will automatically scale back heavy bandwidth users (such as p2p traffic) and "normal" users will see a 25 to 40 percent busy hour improvement for activities such as e-mail, chat, and web surfing. There is no need to do any administration, completely turnkey!
· Unique implementation allows you to limit incoming Internet traffic
· Arbitrator 3.x and up work fine with Netfilter on the same machine!
· Automatically scales to Dial Up, DSL, T1, 40mbs
· Determines your actual trunk speed and dynamically adjusts bandwidth limiting accordingly.
What's New in This Release:
· In this release, there is a new utility that allows a user to see how many connections are current for an existing IP address.
· This will aid operators in deciding which users on their networks are candidates for a connection limit rule.
