     trickled — userspace bandwidth manager daemon


     trickled [-h] [-v] [-V] [-f] [-s] [-d rate] [-u rate] [-t seconds] [-l length] [-p priority]
              [-c file] [-n path] [-N seconds] [-w size]


     trickled is a userspace bandwidth manager daemon.  trickled manages several trickle(1)
     sessions at a time, shaping across multiple sessions.

     The options are as follows:

     -v           Increases the verbosity level (can be specified multiple times).

     -V           Prints version.

     -f           Runs trickled in the foreground.

     -s           Uses syslog for all output (instead of stderr).

     -d rate      Limit the download bandwidth consumption to rate KB/s.

     -u rate      Limit the upload bandwidth consumption to rate KB/s.

     -t seconds   Set smoothing time to seconds s.  The smoothing time determines with what
                  intervals trickled will try to let the application transceive data.  Smaller
                  values will result in a more continuous (smooth) session, while larger values
                  may produce bursts in the sending and receiving data.  Smaller values (0.1 - 1
                  s) are ideal for interactive applications while slightly larger values (1 - 10
                  s) are better for applications that need bulk transfer.  This parameter is
                  customizable on a per-application basis via trickled.conf(5).  The default
                  value is 5 s.

     -l length    Set smoothing length to length KB.  The smoothing length is a fallback of the
                  smoothing time.  If trickled cannot meet the requested smoothing time, it will
                  instead fall back on sending length KB of data.  The default value is 10 KB.

     -p priority  Set default priority to priority.

     -c file      Use the configuration file file.  This file must be of the format documented in

     -n path      Set socket name to path.  By default, trickled uses /tmp/.trickled.sock.

     -N seconds   Notifies user of total bandwidth consumption every seconds s.

     -w size      Set peak detection window size to size KB.  This determines how aggressive
                  trickled is at eliminating bandwidth consumption peaks.  Lower values will be
                  more aggressive, but may also result in over shaping.  The default value (512
                  KB) is usually sufficient.


     trickled -u 10 -d 20

     Limit aggregate trickle(1) upload bandwidth consumption to 10 KB/s and download consumption
     to 20 KB/s.
