I'm planning to use AWS EC2 for my web application and I need control over the bandwidth usage (don't want the instances to be compromised and ramping up bandwidth cost crazily). There are many threads in AWS forums on this matter and no immediate solution.
There are other cloud hosts like GAE and Rackspace but I really want to use AWS. I'm reading that in linux, there is tc command and traffic shaper programs that can cap bandwidth usage.
Anyone using them for traffic control on AWS? Are they practical? Any guide for novices (the ones I've found are pretty complex)?
