Re: is there any dummy bandwidth shaping script?

Does wondershaper still consume the full downstream bandwidth  when it is 
shaping the download traffic? 

Limit download speed

This is slightly trickier as we can't really influence how fast the internet
ships us data. We can however drop packets that are coming in too fast,
which causes TCP/IP to slow down to just the rate we want. Because we don't
want to drop traffic unnecessarily, we configure a 'burst' size we allow at
higher speed.

Now, once we have done this, we have eliminated the downstream queue totally
(except for short bursts), and gain the ability to manage the upstream queue
with all the power Linux offers.
