ip_relay can shape the TCP traffic forwarded through it to a specified
bandwidth and allow this specified bandwidth to be changed on-the-fly. Multiple
data streams to different hosts/ports may be shaped to the same total
bandwidth, much like a traffic shaping router would, however this application
runs in user space, and works by acting as a TCP proxy.
ip_relay sprang from the fact that I use a modem for home Internet
connectivity, and once a large download has started, other Internet activities:
telnet, surfing, VOIP, are largely useless. With ip_relay, you can suddenly
decide to shape your downloads to 50% of your available bandwidth, and make use
of the more interactive applications.
