       This  manual page documents briefly the wondershaper script.  This manual page was written
       for the Debian distribution because the original script does not have a manual page.

       wondershaper is a traffic shaping script  that  provides  low  latency,  prioritizes  bulk
       transfers  below  normal  web  traffic,  prioritizes  interactive  shells above normal web
       traffic, and attempts to prevent upload and download traffic from affecting  each  other's
       ack   packets.    Put  simply,  the  wondershaper  makes  your  internet  connection  more


       A summary of wondershaper syntax is included below.  For a complete description,  see  the
       files in /usr/share/doc/wondershaper.
