I'm looking for something like nice for cpu, but for network usage that will limit application network consumption to level that will configure.
I have problems with xapian-replicate-server that is consuming 80 % of my network. It's causing mysql connections problem (mysql server is working on this machine too). I can't move xapian or mysql to other machine so i need to limit xapian network usage to a decent level.
Is there any tool that will help me do this ?
