T@h upload traffic shaping

Hello, Im using tiles home @ my linux debian machine. But when t@h is uploading my adsl line is lagged. Is any option to shape T@H ? I tried to use trickle, but trickle blocked upload.

trickle -u 14 -s ./ loop


[#7   0% upload] Upload error: Error uploading to 500 syswrite: Resource temporarily unavailable

Then i run upload without trickle ./ upload and everything is ok.

It dont know its problem for trickle or T@H ? Im not programmer, sorry :) Maybe it would be great to use own shaping, setting in configure file.

The one thing that could be aborting uploads here is a Lighttpd timeout setting (over which I don't have any control, apparently). Also, some ISP's proxies could interfere.

I doubt that the client will implement it's own traffic shaping. It uses perl's libwww library and going away from that would make things much more complicated.

Besides, we don't want to enable too many slow clients. Each upload occupies a slot of which we only have a limited number and can therefore slow down the whole system.

I'll leave this ticket open for now as a reference. But I don't plan to actually work on this.
